The Dovetail Trio

Presenting England's traditional songs with a bold and fresh approach, The Dovetail Trio explores familiar narratives with infectious energy and a passion for musical heritage.

This collaboration combines the distinctive voices and acclaimed instrumental talents of BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee Jamie Roberts, BBC Performing Arts Award winner Rosie Hood and Newcastle Folk Degree alumnus Matt Quinn.

The Dovetail Trio’s debut album Wing of Evening was released in September 2015 on RootBeat Records. The album has been well received with 4 star reviews from the Telegraph, R2 and Songlines and national radio play on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3. The album features a number of unusual versions of traditional English songs alongside an American folk story, a traditional Scottish whaling song and even a French/Canadian tune set. Tight vocal harmonies and skilled musicianship make this an exciting debut album.

The Willows

The six piece band brings together some of the most exciting musicians on the UK folk and roots scene.

They blur the boundaries between contemporary song and folk traditions on either side of the Atlantic. Their sound is expansive, varied and rich in power. It is a band equally at home with pin-drop intimacy as they are invigorating foot-stompers.
