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.

WHY? ‘A breath of fresh air to the folk music community’ Maverick Magazine
