JAMES SANTER, BBC INTRODUCING
Wildwood Kin are an acclaimed anglo/americana trio from Exeter in Devon comprising of two sisters, Beth and Emillie Key and their cousin Meghann Loney. The music is a mix of their own beautiful and thought provoking original songs with a few stunning arrangements of some better known covers. Their voices meld perfectly in effortless and sublime close harmony and they accompany themselves on a range of acoustic instruments.
In 2015 the girls were shortlisted for a major BBC Radio Music Award and in 2016 their debut single Warrior Daughter spent several weeks on the Radio 2 playlist. Their tracks have notched several million streams on Spotify.
They also feature on every track on Seth Lakeman’s top 2016 top 20 album Ballads of the Broken Few produced by the legendary Ethan Johns.
They headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Somersault festival and played numerous festivals including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk and Beautiful Days as well as a headline tour in the Alps. This year they toured extensively and supported Texan band The Oh Hellos and UK folk legend Seth Lakeman and they start 2017 at Celtic Connections in Scotland.
They are currently recording their own album due for release in 2017.
They'll be supported by Richard James who'll be accompanied by the one and only Adam Moran. Here's a video of Richard playing alongside Adam Moran (aka Adam in the Hat) and Leigh Coleman).
Lottie Jones will bring her breathtaking vocals, combined with intimate, evocative lyrics written with a thoughtfulness which calls to mind artists like Daughter, Alela Diane and Joanna Newsom. Check out her version of Estelle's American Boy;
