The Brothers Gillespie
Described by Folk Radio UK as ‘weaving an especially compelling magic’, and 'showing off British acoustic music in its best possible light', Northumbrian duo 'The Brothers Gillespie' sing songs of great lyrical power, animated by the sound of soaring sibling harmony, inspired guitar playing and a rich array of acoustic instruments. Their songs and performances have a rare, intimate energy that is both earthy and ethereal, romantic and radical. The release of their third album 'The Merciful Road' sees them embark on a UK wide tour in 2022.
“Imagine the guitar work of the early Nic Jones, the close harmony work of the Dransfields and the commitment and honesty of Bob Davenport rolled into two brothers and you'll get some idea. Their new album The Fell is totally brilliant”.-Mike Harding
“This is a moving and surprising album. Stunning songs beautifully sung and played.”- Northern Sky
