Village Folk Presents: The Dovetail Trio

Live folk, roots & acoustic music.
The Dovetail Trio is a new collaboration effortlessly combining the distinctive voices and acclaimed instrumental talents of BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee Jamie Roberts, BBC Performing Arts Award winner Rosie Hood, and Newcastle Folk Degree alumnus Matt Quinn.

"By far one of the best partnerships I have come across this year" - Fatea

Presenting England's traditional songs with a bold and fresh approach, they explore familiar narratives with their infectious energy and a true passion for musical heritage.

The Dovetail Trio’s debut album Wing of Evening was released in September 2015 on RootBeat Records. The album is a "combination of richly rounded accented vocals, skin-tight harmonies and sparse yet polished instrumentation" (FolkWords) and has been well received with 4* reviews from the Telegraph, R2 and Songlines and national radio play on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3.
The album features a number of unusual versions of traditional English songs alongside an American folk story, a traditional Scottish whaling song, and even a French/Canadian tune set. Tight vocal harmonies and skilled musicianship make this an exciting debut album.

Barnsley's Jamie Roberts is renowned for his narrative singing and driving guitar rhythms. In 2007 he joined folk quartet Kerfuffle with Hannah James and Sam Sweeney, and in 2013 was a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee with duo, Gilmore & Roberts.

Rosie Hood's pure voice and engaging performances are garnering widespread acclaim. With a keen eye on the history of the songs she sings, particularly those of her native Wiltshire, she has performed at a number of the country's leading festivals and folk clubs, and opened for the Cecil Sharp Project. Rosie was, for 2015, a BBC Performing Arts Fellow with the English Folk Dance & Song Society (EFDSS).

Multi-instrumentalist Matt Quinn has been playing the melodeon, mandolin and fiddle, and singing his way around the English folk scene for the last seven years in various bands including Dogan & the Boombox Karavan, The Mighty Quinns and the Eliza Carthy Ceilidh Band.

'A skilled and folk-club-friendly approach to English traditional music.' - Froots magazine.
