Bringing together some of the most exciting musicians on the UK folk & roots scene, The Willows blur the boundaries between contemporary song and folk traditions on either side of the Atlantic.
The band shot to prominence in 2013 when debut album Beneath Our Humble Soil co-produced by Stu Hanna (Megson, Show of Hands) was championed by the likes of Mike Harding and Bob Harris, and subsequently nominated for Best Debut by Spiral Earth. The band followed up with Amidst Fiery Skies co-produced by Sean Lakeman which was equally well received…
Alongside their achievements in the studio, a hectic touring schedule has helped the band build a reputation as a compelling live act, appearing at just about every major folk festival going in recent years. Catch them while you can.
