ABM are pleased to be working with the talented Northumbrian sibling duo Brothers Gillespie on their Spring 2023 album tour of latest release The Merciful Road. With a captivating sound centred around guitar and fiddle with the brothers’ voices singing in ‘the glorious tones of their blood harmony’ (Sam Lee), their intimate live shows are winning over audiences throughout the land, including recent appearances at Mosely Folk Festival and The Pianodrome, at Edinburgh Fringe.

Described by Folk Radio UK as ‘weaving an especially compelling magic’, and ‘showing off British acoustic music in its best possible light’, brothers James and Sam Gillespie sing songs of great lyrical power, animated by the sound of soaring sibling harmony, inspired guitar playing and a rich array of acoustic instruments. Their songs and performances have a rare, intimate energy that is both earthy and ethereal, romantic and radical.

“Anyone who has seen the brothers live will surely attest that it is an experience that will stay with you. There is a feeling of warmth that exudes from them and affects everyone in the room.” Folk London
