The Brothers Gillespie

Doors open at 7pm

The Brothers Gillespie are a traditional folk song duo from Northumberland, whose music combines searing sibling vocal harmony with arrangements of guitar, fiddle, mandolin and shruti box. Their repertoire spans material from Scotland, Northumberland, England, Ireland, the traveler tradition, border ballads and their own compositions. Strongly rooted in place, they descend beneath the national boundaries to find the common ground beneath us and to draw new power in the retelling of our histories. In their music you can hear the voice of this land and feel the power of the deep Celtic taproot that lies beneath.



All tickets £8 (£5 for under 16s)
