Sunday is always a great day for Folk….

Following on from the success of their debut album, Reformation House, in 2010, Galley Beggar have released their self-titled second album. Both can be albums purchased via

Galley Beggar are a folk rock band of six musicians inspired by the likes of Fairport Convention, Pentangle and Led Zeppelin’s acoustic explorations, and our setting out to imagine the next phase of English Folk Rock.

Their live performances bring the intensity of a rock band to electric folk and include plenty of instrument changes as they move from music found within the collections of Cecil Sharp and Francis Child through to electrified psychedelic freakouts. Harmony vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, violin, recorder, bouzouki, keyboards, bass and drums make up the sound of Galley Beggar.
