The Drystones on Friday 25th October 2019
Known for their fiddle, guitar and whistle music and songs, and with two music degrees between them, Alex Garden and Ford Collier play an array of musical instruments on their third album, which they will bring to the live shows this October.
The Drystones are two young musicians who come from Priddy, a tiny village in Somerset, but don’t be fooled by that – they have eight years of playing experience which includes prestigious festivals like Glastonbury, Sidmouth Folk Week, Larmer Tree, and have played up and down the country from the Isle of Wight to the Isle Of Arran.
Alex Garden and Ford Collier started their musical partnership at secondary school and have since developed an almost telepathic communication. Mike Harding has described them as ‘indecently talented’ and last year they were nominated for the BBC2 Radio 2 Young Folk Award. They have also won the Larmer Tree Break Through Music Award and were Steve Lamacq’s recommendation of the day at Glastonbury.
Still only 22 years old, The Drystones released their third album APPARITIONS on 12th April. This album is their most progressive yet (described as “a moment of folk glory” – Liverpool Sound & Vision”). They have played festivals all over the UK and beyond and supported Ray Davis, Steeleye Span, Seth Lakeman, Elephant Sessions, and Martin and Eliza Carthy at Cecil Sharp House.
