The Brothers Gillespie “are simultaneously part of the music of past centuries and also entirely new and relevant” — Folking.com
“fantastic musicianship… totally brilliant” — Mike Harding
“The Brothers Gillespie have finally arrived! And with them bringing a texture and spirit to folk songs new and old that captures all the earthly magic, shining with classic troubadourian wholesomeness so often attempted but rarely as genuine as you’ll find here.” — Sam Lee
We hope to see you there!
