A bespoke banquet of folk and country, from Newcastle upon Tyne. Northumbrian roots, foot-stomping bluesy romps and quirky folksy ballads delicately arranged around upbeat and engaging fiddle, mandolin, bass, drums & guitar.
This band tell stories. Tales of outlaws and vandals, sinners and sirens are honestly told in lyrics full of soul, uniquely arranged and enchantingly sung in ethereal harmony by lead vocalist Laura. Classical Violinist Ray has listeners under his spell with lilting melodies and driving fiddle, and together with Guitarist/Mandolin player John, they create a rich, rootsy shade, complimenting many of the band's darkly romantic lyrics. Add Joey, their charismatic bass player, and the rousing rhythm of both guitarist Angus and drummer Tibbs, and these Thieves will have you on your feet - no matter who pops their head in, they will always stay, for the pin-drop harmonies or the boot-stomping atmosphere.
Intimate and unique performance spaces suit these Thieves best, and this band have seen their fair share. Lighthouses, pirate ships, woodland huts, festival tents and rusty old barns have held just a few of their most memorable performances to date.
Alt-Folksters Gilded Thieves have also supported artists such as Larkin Poe, Blackbeard's Tea Party, Coco and The Butterfields, Jess Morgan, Marty Craggs and many more, and have performed up and down the UK.
A band you'll most likely fall in love with.
