Who are Galley Beggar?
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
"For any fans of the traditional Folk Rock genre, the addition of Reformation House to your record collection can only be a good thing." – Bright Young Folk
"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
"The British folk music scene is healthier than ever with bands like Mumford and Sons and Stornoway. Galley Beggar deserve to be up there too." The Gig Guide
