Folk fans take note – Gilmore and Roberts appearing at The Lights on 10 October

Three times nominees at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Gilmore and Roberts will be performing an intimate folk set at The Lights, Andover

Contemporary folk/acoustic duo Gilmore and Roberts combine award-winning song writing with astounding musicianship and their trademark harmonies to create a powerful wall of sound.

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.

A Problem Of Our Kind is the fifth studio album from Gilmore and Roberts.

We realised most of songs on the album deal with different aspects of being human – some negative, like selfishness or materialism, and some more positive, like our sentimental side or philanthropy” explains Jamie Roberts (vocals, guitar).

Us humans are pretty complex” continues Katriona Gilmore (vocals, fiddle, mandolin). “Somehow it made us want to present these songs in quite a simple way.”

Folk fans can now experience Gilmore and Roberts live and local at The Lights, Andover on Thursday, 10 October.
