Strings soaring over locked-down guitars, and all about the songs
Thursday’s Band are a mysterious and exciting mix of strings and guitars, wrapped around extraordinary songs. This is what happens when you combine intriguing contemporary songwriting with locked down acoustic guitars and three-part harmony - all topped of with free-flowing fiddle, viola and mandolin.
Sometimes the songs tell tales from the distant past; sometimes they’re poignant and personal; sometimes they break out into wistful laments and exuberant tunes.
The band are Mark Gamon (guitar, vocals and songs); Matt Kelly (fiddle, viola, mandolin, vocals and songs); Lucinda Fudge (viola and vocals); and Nick Blishen (guitar). Individually, they’ve played folk, rock, country, cajun and orchestral music - together they’re a new take on acoustic music and songwriting fed through a filter of British and North American folk styles.
‘The most beautiful music I’ve heard in years…’
‘Spine-tingling… a class act…’
‘The songs sounded wonderful drifting across the field as the sun set. Brilliant songwriting, wonderful harmonies, and fabulous combinations of instruments…’
