Featured on the cover of fRoots Magazine alongside Stick In The Wheel, Lynched, and Mishaped Pearls as the one of the four emerging bands of 2015, four piece Lords of Thyme share a love of esoteric folk, psych and progressive music. Formed after Joe Woolley, Tali Trow and Pat Kenneally, past members UK prog-folk act Circulus, decided to record together, they describe themselves as psych-folk, and name Pentangle, Davy Graham and Neu! as artists that inform their sound. Currently recording their debut album with John Wood (Nick Drake/ Pentangle), they’re a leading act in the exciting newly emerging UK folk underground. Their sound features fine harmony and brilliant musicianship, with hints of Americana, psychedelia, jazz and traditional English folk in their musical melting pot.

Folk troubadour Nigel of Bermondsey is head of the ‘South East London Folklore Society’, a group dedicated to London folklore and the esoteric, and inspiration for his musical gazetteer of London- ‘Gemini City’. As Gentlefolk he is augmented by a four piece band of cello, violin, percussion and additional vocals, his music stretches from chamber folk to psychedelic storytelling, utterly uncatgorisable and all the better for it- a true maverick. Recent performances include the Southbank Centre, the Globe Theatre, and Cecil Sharp House.

Chris Brambley is guitarist with UK band The Sticklers. His solo work is firmly based in acoustic folk tradition, with an intricate fingerpicking style reminiscent of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn and echoes of James Taylor in his beautifully crafted songs.
