ABOUT
 
  Magicfolk combine traditional and modern influences, creating music with
  a powerful, otherworldly atmosphere. Their material ranges from energetic
  folk reels and eastern European dance tunes to ethereal ballads, progressive
  rock and psychedelia.
   
 
"Hugely evocative"
 

Fireworks Magazine

   
  With the magnetic "fey"' voice of Michelle Glover the band also incorporates
 

a fine array of instruments including flute, violin, electric and acoustic guitars,

  keyboards, EWI, bouzouki, piccolo, drums, and more recently, a sprinkling of
  hurdy gurdy.
   
 
“Constantly inventive, exquisite, daring, a new sound”
 
Woven Wheat Whispers
   
  Inspired by myth and folklore, Magicfolk’s songs yet always find relevance
  in the modern and personal, weaving threads of ancient symbolism into
  songs edged with current and innovative musical flavours.
   
 
“Passionate, fresh and vital”
 
Darkroom Magazine
   
  The song-writing duo Michelle Glover (vocals, flute, guitar) and Ben Glover
    (bass, EWI) founded Magicfolk in 2003. Drummer Geoff Charlton was one of
    the earliest members, and completing the present line-up are Chris Scupham
    (keys), and Colin Mold (violin, guitar) who recently toured with Karnataka.
     
   
"A compelling mix of quality female vocals,
   
keyboards, flute, acoustic and electric guitars"
   
Classic Rock Society
     
    The band have also worked with several other past members and guests
    during the development of their 2nd and 3rd albums - including Stephen
    Scott (guitar), Sotos Yiasimi (bouzouki) and Lee Morant (guitar).
     
    As a follow-up to the debut album ‘Magicfolk’ (2007), 'Tales of Power' was
    released in 2011 - a collection of eleven tracks which continue the journey
    into the green, mysterious, and "enchanted Kingdom of Magicfolk" (Judas
   

Kiss Magazine). And currently they are preparing a third album 'Saltarello'

   

- a return to folk and eastern style roots - with view to releasing in 2013/14.
