See three of the best emerging English folk acts in HOME, the vibrant hub venue of Manchester Folk Festival. Thursday’s line-up features:
Northumbrian duo The Brothers Gillespie sing traditional and original songs with lyrical and visionary intensity, rich with sounds of soaring sibling harmony, guitars, flute, fiddle and mandolin. Their songs and performances are animated by a rare energy, both earthy and ethereal, romantic and radical.
UK alt-folk duo Good Habits, composed of singer-cellist Bonnie Schwarz and accordionist Pete Shaw, Good Habits create folk-infused songs that test the limits of their traditional instruments.
Mishra weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and has already brought awards recognition since their formation in 2017. Kate Griffin (The Magpies) and Ford Collier (BBC R2 Folk Award nominated The Drystones) draw on their unique base of influences that encompasses folk music of the UK and America, Indian classical music, and soul to create a surprisingly accessible sound that audiences instantly connect to.
