Big Ginger Tom Music presents: Gilmore & Roberts with support from Martha Bailey
Friday, 9 November @ 7:00 PM - 10:30 PM£12
Katriona & Jamie were so well received last August we had to have them back.
Contemporary folk/acoustic duo Gilmore & Roberts combine award-winning songwriting with astounding musicianship and their trademark harmonies to create a powerful wall of sound. 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. 2015 saw the release of their fourth album, ‘Conflict Tourism’, which appeared on several end-of-year Best Album lists and received national airplay on both BBC Radio 2 & BBC 6music. To celebrate a decade as a duo, Gilmore & Roberts released their first live album ‘In Our History – LIVE’ in November 2016 – exactly ten years to the day since their first EP release.
