Filkin’s Drift are an energetic folk duo whose fiddle and guitar tunes have been igniting audiences across the UK. Meeting in the multicultural city of Birmingham, Filkin’s Drift weave together intricate melodies from the folklore of their homes, Wales and Gloucestershire. Their music combines the traditional and the contemporary, blending fiddle, guitar, harmonium and mandolin with their close vocal harmonies. Chris Roberts’ classical training means he soars effortlessly through jigs and reels with an unrivalled purity, while Seth Bye’s ‘fantastic fiddle-driven energy’ (BBC Radio Glos) and multi-instrumental abilities combine with a showmanship gained from touring with Giffords Circus.
“Exquisite tune playing mixes effortlessly with irresistible grooves and an engaging chemistry.” DAN WALSH, BBC Folk Awards Musician Of The Year Nominee, Urban Folk Quartet
