The Brothers Gillespie and Five in a Bar

  • Settle Victoria Hall 24 Kirkgate Settle, England, BD24 9DZ United Kingdom (map)


North Tyne troubadours The Brothers Gillespie combine the glorious tones of sibling harmony with brilliant multi-instrumentalism and inspired song writing. Described by Folk Radio UK as ‘weaving an especially compelling magic’

There is a lyrical and visionary power to their song writing, which channels a sense of wild magic, of the mythic aspects of folk culture and the power of place. 

Their first album ‘Songs from the Outlands’ had great reviews, which led to some extensive touring with the Nest Collective at Shamble Festival, Cambridge Folk Fest, Unamplified, Festival No.6, and numerous folk festivals.

After a tour of England, Wales and France in 2018 the brothers have released their second album called 'The Fell'.  The album was lunched at The Queen's Hall in Hexham in December and they are now touring to promote the new album.

Supporting the brothers is: -


Five women sing their own capella harmony arrangements, inspired by songs of meaning and feeling. Performing regularly throughout the North West with  "Perfectly blended voices, with a broad range of songs."                                                                                


This is a fund raising concert and proceeds go to Refugee ReSETTLEment


“Sam and James are great protagonists of the living tradition of British folk music”.
