We are delighted to welcome back The Magpies after their amazing debut at Acapela in 2020. Their concert was one of the highlights of 2020 and if you experienced them first time round you will certainly want to to be here for their return!
The Magpies formed in their hometown of York in the autumn of 2017.
Based on a deeply felt musical friendship, they work collaboratively, arranging material led by powerful vocals and glittering instrumental ornamentation. They each draw on their transatlantic influences to create a unique blend of Celtic and bluegrass folk, transporting audiences to distant lands and capturing imaginations with their enthralling live show.
They have performed at festivals such as Cambridge Folk Festival, the main stage at Wickham Festival, Towersey Festival, Deer Shed Festival, Grassington and a sold out EP release show at The Great Yorkshire Fringe. The first transatlantic trip for the band took place in February 2019, when they performed at Folk Alliance International in Montréal. Last summer they will performed at many festivals including Glastonbury, Larmer Tree, Warwick, Costa del Folk, and Shambala, whilst recording their debut full band album for release in the winter.
“A natural chemistry… all three voices blend and harmonise beautifully… the mix of styles offers so much promise.” Folk Radio UK
“Very well liked by the punters! A proper hit.” Bev Burton, Cambridge Folk Festival
