“Gilmore and Roberts are another young act producing sharp contemporary songs with roots deep in the British folk tradition. FIVE STARS *****” —Rock’n’Reel
‘FIVE STARS *****’ —Maverick
Contemporary folk/acoustic duo Gilmore & Roberts combine award-winning song writing with astounding lap-tapping guitar, fiery fiddle and their trademark harmonies, creating a powerful wall of sound. Their third album, The Innocent Left, recorded in London with producer Julian Simmons (Guillemots, Ed Sheeran, Albert Lee), explores many and varied topics but remains consistently bound by Gilmore & Roberts’ passion for stories. From the steady groove of the intriguing “Doctor James,” to the relentless pounding of “Scarecrow,” and the pensive introspection of “Silver Screen,” the album encompasses elements of folk, bluegrass and rock while maintaining the Yorkshire-based pair’s own distinctive stylings.
Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts met while studying at Leeds College of Music in the UK and began working together in 2006, releasing their first full-length album Shadows & Half Light two years later. In 2010, the duo were nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award and released their highly anticipated second album, Up From The Deep, receiving national airplay and scoring a ‘Best Original Song’ Hancock UK Folk Award for ‘Fleetwood Fair’. Since then, the duo have toured with folk rock legends Fairport Convention and completed several headline tours in their own right, astonishing audiences up and down the country, as well as performing at some of Britain’s largest folk festivals. Both Gilmore and Roberts are familiar faces to festival-goers nationwide from their previous projects—Gilmore with indie folk sensations Tiny Tin Lady, singer Rosie Doonan and more recently The Albion Band, and Roberts with young English traditionalists Kerfuffle.
