Mishra
ABOUT
 
Mishra are a global folk outfit gathering momentum on the UK scene. With strong roots in U.K folk, they weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and is already bringing them awards recognition from just under two years of performing. Led by Kate Griffin's voice and inimitable clawhammer banjo and driven by Ford Collier's continent-hopping instrumental skills (Indian tabla, African calabash, Irish whistle and guitar), they won Cambridge Folk Festival's first ever Christian Raphael prize and in separate projects were both shortlisted for the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards.Both already accomplished folk musicians (The Drystones and The Unsung Roots) 2018 saw them play Sidmouth Folk Week, Cambridge Folk Festival, Priddy Folk Festival and many more. Until 2019, Mishra performed as a duo under the name Kate Griffin and Ford Collier; their sound has now been further underpinned by the addition of versatile jazz-folk double-bassist and bouzouki player Joss Mann-Hazell. Mishra's debut album also features accomplished tabla player John Ball, whose contribution allows a full band sound on live-in-the-room analogue recordings of their uniquely accessible Indo-folk.
