The Willows Band is a Cambridge based folk band. Their first album Beneath Our Humble Soil was nominated for Best Debut in the Spiral Earth Awards 2014, and has been championed by the likes of Bob Harris and Mike Harding. The much anticipated follow-up Amidst Fiery Skies, co-produced with
Sean Lakeman was released to critical aclaim, with the Telegraph hailing it “a triumph” in a 5-star review and a place in their folk albums of 2014.
Fronted by the breathtaking vocals of Jade Rhiannon, supported by rich vocal harmonies and dynamic acoustic musicianship the band take influence from folk traditions on both sides of the Atlantic.
