The Gorms play mostly traditional scottish folk music in their own distinctive way. An element of humour usually runs through their marathon performances, which run the gamut from soft and wistful to (more often) very rowdy indeed.
The Buffalo Skinners
The Buffalo Skinners are a songwriting collective based in Sheffield. Their music stems from a shared passion for writing, singing, and serving the song. Kieran Thorpe plays Fender Rhodes Keyboard, James Nicholls the Violin, Peter Seccombe the Guitar, Miles Stapleton the Drums and Robbie Thompson, Bass. The band draw influence from 60’s Rock n Roll, Folk, Blues and whatever else they’ve been listening to recently. Over the past six years the boys have shared highs and lows, personal space, and an ex-postal van across England, America and France. Most importantly they have shared their songs, with anyone willing to listen. Bob Harris, Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Janice Long and Dermot O’Leary have all been among them, and have in turn all played tracks from the first two albums on BBC Radio. This has led to endless festival appearances across the UK including BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Wilderness, Tramlines, Camp Bestival… 2016 sees The Buffalo Skinners set to release a third album produced by the critically acclaimed Colin Elliot (Richard Hawley, Slow Club, Kylie Minogue)
