Getting tired of Mumford and Sons churning out the same ole same ole? Then do what I did and take a look at The Folk Remedy from Manchester whose diversity and musicality is as refreshing as it is highly listenable. These three musicians have merged their own different musical backgrounds into one sound, which brings out their individual personalities whilst staying true to their folk roots.
Sirens is a retrospective, wistful, catchy, head nodding, foot tapping piece of musical loveliness. The violin adding to the poignant lyrics of the track and the guitar adding to the foot tapping! They're musicianship is constantly matched by their songwriting ability, bringing us authenticity, warmth, sorrow and joy without 'cloning' previous tracks.
The Folk Remedy are.....Matt Whoriskey, Maria Bonner and Rob Ryle. Matt and Maria hail from Derry City in Northern Ireland and have been friends for more than a decade. Matt, got to know Boltonian Rob, who had previously been in bands and played all over the North West.
