Event Description

Tamsyn, Grace, Louella and Johanna had been friends and admiring each other musically for years before it finally occurred to them in 2015 to join forces professionally. The sentiment of four friends singing and playing together for their own enjoyment remains at the forefront of the result which is Foxes Fair.

Inspired by the deep well of traditional folk music, tailoring songs and melodies to fit their own unique musical style, their playful string arrangements (using the classic old-time styles of the 5-string banjo, Appalachian dulcimer and finger-picked guitars) provide a delightful backdrop to their natural and effortless harmonies.

Their sound is as timeless as their topics they tell stories of nature, love, death the joys of drinking.

Taking turns to lead the songs and swapping instruments, Foxes Fair’s live performances are permeated by warmth and comradery rarely seen to this extend in musical groups, friendship clearly binding these ladies as much as the love for the music they make.

‘Utterly beautiful harmonies and great strings’ (St Ives Times & Echo)
