The Drystones are a lively young folk duo from Priddy in Somerset and were nominated for the BBC 2 Young Folk Award this year. Playing violin, guitar and whistle, they’ve made a big splash on the UK folk scene since they formed in July 2011. They play a mix of their own tunes and arrangements of folk tunes given drive, beat and energy. They have played festivals all over the Country (including Sidmouth, Broadstairs, Warwick, Bromyard, Purbeck and Folk East), and at their 2013 Glastonbury Festival performance they were highlighted by Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 as his “recommendation of the day”. They were the 2015 Larmer Tree Breakthrough Music Award winners and were asked by Michael Eavis to play the 2015 Glastonbury Extravaganza when Joan Armatrading had to cancel! Their third album “We Happy Few” is a Songlines “Top Of The World”.
“Fabulous, I haven’t seen anything like it in 45 years of folk!”
– Dave James – Bromyard Folk Festival
“Indecently talented” – Mike Harding, Mike Harding Folk Show
“Absolutely blown away by their energy”- Will Lang – Halsway Manor Centre for Folk Arts
“Surely the hottest act in the South West today”
– Martine Hardy, Camelot Music Night
“To describe their instrumental style as spirited and animated would be akin to asserting that Bellowhead can be quite an energetic band” – Clive Pownceby, Living Tradition
