The Gillies
Folk singer/songwriter duo from SE London. Their music tells of love, loss, bittersweet and harsh realities, while the distinctive sound of their acoustic guitars create an intense lonesome dark musical style.

“Music for your graveside” is one way they describe their songs. True, there’s darkness in there but also moments of lightness and joy that confirm our existence, and The Gillies can convey all that in just one song.

Their sound, a weaving together of steel-strung and tenor guitars, flits between the ethereal and gritty down-home reality.

Delivered with unaffected clarity, their work combines bittersweet immediacy with an intangible sense of nostalgia.

Milton Hide
AKA Jim and Josie Tipler come from East Sussex and live at the foot of the famous Long Man of Wilmington hill figure.

The duo weave eloquent, well-crafted songs and stories; Jim’s guitar and Josie’s pure vocal delivery blending perfectly.

Arrangements also include percussion, with the clarinet providing a third voice.

Their music has been described as “reminiscent of the Moody Blues” (Living Tradition), “a touch of Fleetwood Mac” and “vintage Steeleye” (Spiral Earth)
