Contemporary folk-acoustic duo Gilmore & Roberts, who combine award-winning song writing with astounding musicianship and their trademark harmonies, are preparing for their up and coming UK tour, stopping at the Unicorn Theatre, Abingdon in May.
Nominated three times at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Katriona Gilmore (fiddle, mandolin) and Jamie Roberts (guitar) met while studying at Leeds College of Music and released their debut album in 2008.
Since then, the duo have toured Canada and mainland Europe, played some of the UK’s biggest acoustic festivals and won countless accolades for their genre-spanning work.
Their fourth album, Conflict Tourism, which appeared on several end-of-year Best Album lists and received national airplay on both BBC Radio 2 & BBC 6music, was released in 2015.
In 2016, the duo marked a decade of performing together with their first live album, released 10 years to the day since their first EP launch. Limited to only 1,000 copies and recorded on the duo’s 2016 spring tour, In Our History – LIVE.
Taking place on May 3 , the doors will open at 7pm with music starting from 7.15pm. Tickets cost £15.
