The Willows are a folk roots family band from Cambridge. Fronted by the breathtaking voice of Jade Rhiannon, supported by rich vocal harmonies and sensitive acoustic musicianship the band draw inspiration from the Americana and British folk traditions in equal quantity. Debut album ‘Beneath Our Humble Soil” was championed by the likes of Mike Harding and Bob Harris. Their second album “Amidst Fiery Skies” received a 5 star review by the Telegraph.
First seen by one of the ACE Space volunteers at the 2014 Shrewsbury Folk Festival they were scheduled to play ACE Space in October 2015 but that whole tour had to be rescheduled. The rescheduled gig for April 2016 turned out to be the first gig the band had to cancel due to illness. So, at last we are able to introduce Newbury to the wonderful music of The Willows – hey will prove they were worth waiting for.
Those ACE Spacers sufficiently old (er, mature) may well experience the same tingle they experienced when first listening to early Fairport Convention (i.e. before Liege and Lief).
Start: 8:00pm (Doors Open 7:30)
