The Willows are a folk band from Cambridge, UK. Their first album 'Beneath Our Humble Soil' was nominated for Best Debut in the Spiral Earth Awards 2014, and has been championed by the likes of Bob Harris and Mike Harding. The much anticipated follow-up Amidst Fiery Skies, co-produced with Sean Lakeman was released to critical aclaim, with The Telegraph hailing it "a triumph" in a 5-star review and a place in their folk albums of 2014. Fronted by the breathtaking vocals of Jade Rhiannon, supported by rich vocal harmonies and dynamic acoustic musicianship the band take influence from folk traditions on both sides of the Atlantic.

2017 brings the 2nd ever change to The Willows line-up with Jon Parker (formerly of Nizlopi) joining on double-bass. Katriona Gilmore (Gilmore & Roberts, Albion Band, Winter Union) has joined the band as well on fiddle. mandolin and vocals. 2018 sees the release of their highly anticipated third album and a UK tour.
