Brothers Gillespie

Friday, March 25, 2022
Time: 7.30pm
Duration: Approx. 1 Hour 45mins
Venue: Kilburn Institute

Northumbrian duo The Brothers Gillespie sing traditional and original songs with lyrical and visionary intensity.

Described by Folk Radio as “weaving an especially compelling magic”, and “showing off British acoustic music in its best possible light”,  their music is rich with sounds of soaring sibling harmony, guitars, flute, fiddle and mandolin.

Brothers James and Sam Gillespie grew up in the small village of Wall on the old Roman frontier, bounded on one side by a magical hill and on the other by the North Tyne river. It was in this valley that music took hold of them. They found a world that was still alive, that breathed magic and which became part of the inspiration for their song. Since that time, the brothers have travelled widely and sung their songs at campfires, concert halls, Parisian circuses, folk clubs and a host of UK festivals including Sidmouth and Cambridge Folk Fests.
