Cardboard Fox – winners of the Sprial Earth Best Debut award for their debut, self-titled EP. The Carrivick Sisters have played for us before at Purbeck, and you may have seen John Breese (bass player) playing banjo with them the year before last as part of the Great Western Revellers. We’re delighted to have them back this year.
This is what they say:
Cardboard Fox are hard to categorise. All four musicians have roots in bluegrass music but their collective influences reach much further and this shows in their music. Formed in late 2013, the band have known each other for much longer but have been waiting for the right opportunity to make it work. All that was needed was for everyone to be in the right place and Joe’s moving from Norwich to Bath was the catalyst that allowed it to happen. This is a group of musicians who are very, very excited about what this line up can create and that’s what makes this acoustic quartet so special. With a focus on original writing and re-imagined folk songs taken from a very different perspective, this band is not to be missed.
