Event Description

Du Glas play their own brand of roots rock, combining influences from Americana and folk music. Born out of the vibrant Cornish music scene their unique sound has been described as, “foot-stomping country with a celtic swing”.

It all started in 2016 when Du Glas (Cornish for ‘black’ and ‘blue’) began their adventure with Lucy Osborne (lead singer) and Anthony Power (guitarist and songwriter) performing at open mic nights and jam sessions in West Cornwall. With Lucy’s background in theatre and Anthony’s stirring tunes, the duo captured audiences’ hearts with their emotional and dynamic performances. Teaming up with various local talents it wasn’t long before they were playing regular gigs and festivals. The group has since grown to include the rhythm master Kevin Cook on drums, the groove machine Dave Gourlay on bass and the sweet sounds of Lou Peixinha on flute and violin.

Together this spirited group mould their different musical tastes to create a diverse set with folk, country and rock influences. Nonetheless, a few things are certain, passionate vocals, solid rhythms and a truly vibrant performance. In 2018 Du Glas released their debut album ‘Too Many Ghosts’ and have since been playing music festivals across the west country including the main stage at Wonder Fields and Cornwall Folk Festival.

2020 was set to see Du Glas spreading their wings with festival appearances around the UK but, of course, those plans have had to go on hold. Instead, they’ve been busy writing and rehearsing new songs and the plan is to record these in Autumn 2020 and to release a new album, ‘The Edge of the World’, in December.

‘[Too Many Ghosts] is such a beautiful song, we absolutely loved the strong folk instrumentation and the lovely vocal harmonies’ – Maisonneuve Music
