Gilmore & Roberts

Details

Gilmore & Roberts - Nominated three times at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Katriona Gilmore (fiddle, mandolin) and Jamie Roberts (guitar) met while studying at Leeds College of Music and released their debut album in 2008.

Since then, the duo have toured Canada and mainland Europe, played some of the UK’s biggest acoustic festivals, toured with folk rock legends Fairport Convention and won countless accolades for their genre-spanning work.

Jake Morley - Jake Morley can certainly claim all the right credentials of a singer-songwriter. White male with a beard – check. Lucy Rose once booked him and Ed Sheeran to play to 25 people upstairs in a pub – check.

While first album ‘Many Fish To Fry’ may have sat easily enough in that company, Paul Simon or Newton Faulkner always seemed a better fit with its implausible guitar playing and chatty lyrics. That was until the richly-layered production of follow-up ‘The Manual’, which leant more on John Grant and Gotye. A stripped back third album seems to move closer to Anais Mitchell and Punch Brothers.
