Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts "A Problem Of Our Kind" Album Launch Tour

Friday 23rd November 2018 20:00-22:45
Click for more details
“Katriona and Jamie are at the heart of everything with increasingly impressive singing and playing.”R2 5* Review
A Problem Of Our Kind is the fifth studio album from award-winning folk/roots duo Gilmore & Roberts – their first release since 2016’s live album In Our History, which celebrated a decade of performing together.

Katriona Gilmore (vocals, fiddle, mandolin) and Jamie Roberts (vocals, guitar) met while studying at Leeds College of Music and began working together in 2006. “We had similar tastes in music” explains Jamie, “and for our degree course we had to write songs and record demos – we’d sing and play on each others’ songs and suddenly we had a load of arrangements that we could play live.”

Starting out on the open mic circuit in Leeds, Gilmore & Roberts kept working on their music for the next five years, juggling gigs with day-jobs and playing in other bands, until finally taking the leap and turning pro in 2011 after an invite to support folk rock legends Fairport Convention on a six week tour.

Gilmore & Roberts infuse their son

Cost: £13.75
