ABOUT
Folk trio TEYR evolved out of London’s thriving session scene, combining bothy ballads, focsle shanties, folk tunes and Irish poetry. Their unique blend of voices and instruments draws links between the many sounds of the Celtic and British isles. Featuring close vocal harmonies, fiddle, uilleann pipes, guitar, low whistle and accordion, and influenced by the great folk musicians who've come before, TEYR (‘3’ in the Cornish language) have honed their craft and thrive on weaving their diverse threads together.

Their acclaimed debut release Far From The Tree is a distillation of two years of playing, writing and wrangling. Recorded with the assistance of celebrated producer Gerry Diver (Lisa Knapp, Sam Lee, Tom Robinson), the “Excellent debut album” (The Independent) blends originals and reworked ballads, displaying the full breadth of the trio’s innovative and distinctive sound.

Described by Folk Radio UK as “High-energy brilliance”, James Gavin, Dominic Henderson and Tommie Black- Roff are three of London’s finest new breed of folk musician.
