Wildwood Kin + Will Varley

Screaming Tarts Present
Wildwood Kin + Will Varley
Cottingham Folk Festival

Wildwood Kin made quite the impression with their 2017 debut album
‘Turning Tides’. It set them on course for an enthralling ride which
led to majestic performances at Glastonbury, Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park
and the Teenage Cancer Trust’s ‘A Beautiful Night Out’ at the Royal
Albert Hall – plus extensive support from Radio 2 and BBC Introducing.
A growing fanbase fell under their spell in the process, pushing them
past the 20 million streams landmark.

Now the trio return with their self-titled second album. Released
earlier this month, it’s as natural as it is accomplished. The trio’s
vocals harmonise effortlessly, there are shades of Simon & Garfunkel,
Bear’s Den and early Fleet Foxes in the beautifully gentle folk rock
melodies, and its lyrics address profound themes like love, loss and
spirituality. But above all, there’s a spirit to the record that’s as
wild and free as the West Country moors where they grew up.

Singer-songwriter Will Varley has come a long way since his early days
haunting the open mics of South London and busking around on The
Underground. After releasing his 5th studio album in 2018, his largely
sold out UK tour drew to a close with a triumphant show at London’s
legendary Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Over the past few years Will has toured relentlessly across Europe and
America as support act for Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Valerie June and
The Proclaimers and he’s sold out his own headline shows in cities as
far a field as Berlin, Zurich, Amsterdam and Vienna. High praise from
the likes of Tim Minchin and Simon Nicol of Fairport Convention have
helped fan the flames, as his audience continues to grow both on the
road and online. His self made music videos have clocked up millions
of views on YouTube and the song ‘Seize The Night’ is fast approaching
four million streams on Spotify.
