Called “high-energy brilliance” by Folk Radio UK, James Patrick Gavin, Dominic Henderson and Tommie Black-Roff are three of the UK’s finest new breed of young folk musicians. They blend voices and instruments to create a sound drawn from the many musical traditions of Britain and Ireland — close vocal harmonies, fiddle, uilleann pipes, guitar, low whistle and accordion — and the result is stunning, creative and captivating.
The name means ‘three’ in Cornish. Tommy grew up in Penzance and now is largely based in Scandinavia. James and Dominic are from North London, with roots reaching out to Wales, Ireland and the Basque Country.
Together they have honed their craft over the best part of a decade and sculpt a distinctive sound from assorted traditions and modernity, combining reworked ballads with their own original and innovative melodies.
We caught them at the Scilly Folk Festival last year and pretty much booked them on the spot. Come and find out why!
