About the band

Foxglove-wall-profile-webThe Foxglove Trio is a group of multi-instrumentalists who perform mostly traditional songs from around the British Isles in English and Welsh. Gathering material from sessions, published song collections and contemporary artists, these talented musicians are making a name for themselves on the UK folk scene for their beautiful harmonies, creative new arrangements and engaging live performances.

We would love to hear from anyone looking for acts for their folk club or festival - please contact us on thefoxglovetrio[at]gmail.com

In addition to performing we're also happy to run a workshop on Welsh Folk Songs (see the video of a workshop group at White Horse Folk Fesival in 2012) or to run a music session at your festival.
