Taking inspiration from the likes of Fairport Convention, Pentangle and Led Zeppelin’s acoustic explorations, Galley Beggar’s music sets out to imagine the next phase of English Folk Rock. Their live performances bring the intensity of a rock band to electric folk and include plenty of instrument changes as they move from music found within the collections of Cecil Sharp and Francis Child through to electrified psychedelic freakouts. Harmony vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, violin, recorder, bass and drums make up the sound of Galley Beggar.

“The themes and textures of Galley Beggar’s music all combine together to form a well produced selection of songs that bring a bygone age – or bygone ages – into the twenty-first century. It’s a gorgeous, gorgeous sound that demands repeated listens” – Stephen Morris, BBC Introducing

“This septet ticks every folk rock box you can think of, from big harmonies to stately, thumping rhythms to diddly and, indeed, diddly” - Rock N Reel Magazine

“Producing work likes this will establish Galley Beggar among the folk rock favourites. Even if that means they steal fans from more illustrious bands” - Folk Words
