Forged amongst the hustle and bustle of North London’s folk scene, TEYR (“3” in the Cornish language) are a trio of formidable musicians who showcase the many sounds of the British Isles. With roots running from Ireland to Wales to Cornwall, James Gavin (guitar and fiddle), Dominic Henderson (uilleann pipes and whistles) and Tommie Black-Roff(accordion), the players thrive on close interplay and pushing the possibilities of acoustic music.
TEYR 01Having met on the trad music scene through late night sessions, each performer holds an intuitive sense of folk music, evident in their deft arrangements and compositions. The trio draws influence from neo-folk groups such as Lau, Kan and Lúnasa, whilst harnessing an innovative combination of strings, reeds and voices. With this distinct mix, TEYR strike an enigmatic path through the current folk wave.

Featuring ten tracks of blistering originals and reworked ballads, their debut album Far From The Tree is a distillation of two years of playing, writing and wrangling. This highly anticipated debut was recorded with the assistance of acclaimed producer Gerry Diver (Lisa Knapp, Sam Lee, Tom Robinson) and displays the full breadth of the trio’s innovative and distinctive sound.

Hi-energy brilliance.

Musicians of this dexterity, quality and charisma make post-trad ensemble TEYR one of the most playful and artful groups around.

These chaps play like ancient souls in young, charismatic bodies. TEYR take something old and keep it compellingly new. Not to be missed.

High octane folk drawing deeply from their combined heritage – three consummate musicians playing with verve, mystery, magic and a healthy dose of disrespect for pointy headed purism – one of London’s finest trad groups in many a year.

The future of folk music is safe in the hands of young musicians like these.
