They founded Theatre Workshop in Kendal with a travelling troupe of storytellers and outlaws committed to the overthrow of the established order where the rich got richer and the poor got austerity – even then! In 1952 they would part company. Joan and Theatre workshop heading to London and Ewan to the folk music world.

On stage Ryan has toured as a solo performer opening for Country purists like Dwight Yoakam, Rosanne Cash and Travis Tritt.

Diyet is Alternative Folk, Roots, Country and Traditional Aboriginal with melodies and stories deeply rooted in her Indigenous world view and northern life.
