Gallows Ghost

I’ve been meaning to post something about this hypnotic folk-rock duo for ages. Powerful vocals are provided by Kate Young and hark back to a time of smugglers and highwaymen, while Mako weaves the pieces together with sensitive guitar harmonies. By chance, I met them at a blues night at the pub and they were kind enough to let me play flute on a few of the songs in their set (despite the fact that we’d only just met) and asked me if I’d like to play at their next gig too.

Here’s the video for their track “Sleeping Stones”:

If you like them and want to know more, the latest news will be up on their facebook page. Kate’s done some rather nice artwork featuring a raven called Edris and it sounds like there’s plenty more to come. I know a website is in the works and will let you know when it’s ready.

I’d jump at any chance to see or play with this duo again – the atmosphere they create is completely magical. I wish them all the best for the future and hope they go far!
