Many of you will by now be familiar with the sound of Galley Beggar whose album, Reformation House, we reviewed back in June. They have put together a fantastic session for your enjoyment which you can listen to below.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Fairport Convention, Pentangle and Led Zeppelin’s acoustic explorations, Galley Beggar’s music sets out to imagine the next phase of English Folk Rock. Their live performances bring the intensity of a rock band to electric folk and include plenty of instrument changes as they move from music found within the collections of Cecil Sharp and Francis Child through to electrified psychedelic freakouts. Harmony vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, violin, recorder, bass and drums make up the sound of Galley Beggar.
