Galley Beggar


Bringing diverse musical tastes to the band, all six members of Galley Beggar converge on the folk fusion of the late 1960s and early 1970s – Fairport Convention, Pentangle, Steeleye Span, Trees, and many lesser known groups whose musicianship was largely overlooked in a rapidly changing music scene. By exploring and expanding the acid folk genre, they continue to win music fans of all ages. “The themes and textures of Galley Beggar’s music all combine together to form a well-produced selection of songs that bring a bygone age – or bygone ages – into the twenty-first century. It’s a gorgeous, gorgeous sound that demands repeated listens.” – Stephen Morris, BBC Introducing.
