Formed in 2017, The Embers have grown from the spark of an idea to a regular feature on the London folk scene, also playing a host of festivals slots and headline shows across the UK.

Playing a mixture of British and American folk classics as well as original material, they bring sorrowful harmonies, driving rhythms and break-neck fiddle to keep you dancing and sobbing into the night in equal measure.

Their debut EP Dog Rose Days is available now:
