Pilgrims’ Way will inject a streak of finest English traditional song and music to the 2012 festival. Celebrating the living tradition in a fresh and engaging way through vocals, box, fiddle and jews harp, Lucy, Edwin and Tom will light up the stage.
Refreshingly different, reassuringly traditional, Pilgrims’ Way are a 3-piece band with a big personality and big sound. Playing their own particular brand of folk music, they were brought together by a series of chance meetings at sessions around the North West of England, bonding over red hair and a shared love of traditional music, they have been shaking up assorted kitchens, public houses and folk venues ever since.
Their influences individually are many and varied but they share a deep respect for the tradition and take as their inspiration some of the most influential bands from the 60s/70s revival.
Named for the Rudyard Kipling poem, set to music by the great Peter Bellamy, their aim is to present gimmick-free English folk of the finest kind. Comprising Edwin Beasant Lucy Wright and Tom Kitching, Pilgrims’ Way won the FATEA Tradition Award 2011.
