Join Filkins Drift for a unique concert as they delve into the folk tales and tunes of Gloucestershire. The duo’s music combines the traditional and the contemporary, blending fiddle and guitar with their close vocal harmonies.

Meeting in the multicultural city of Birmingham, Seth Bye and Chris Roberts weave together intricate melodies from the folklore of their homes, Wales and Gloucestershire. Ornate interplay between two fretted instruments conjures up a Baroque soundworld, while their foot-stomping fiddle and guitar tunes have been igniting audiences across the UK.
