A very special performance from acoustic folk quartet Cardboard Fox, winners of the prestigious Spiral Earth Best Debut award.
The line-up includes Laura and Charlotte Carrivick, better known as acclaimed duo The Carrivick Sisters. The pair are joined by John Breese, current banjo player with the highly regarded Coal Porters, and mandolin extraordinaire Joe Tozer, three time winner of the EFDSS Young Musician Competition.
Cardboard Fox are hard to categorise. All four musicians have roots in bluegrass music but their collective influences reach much further and this shows in their music. The band have gained a impressive reputation for their energetic live show and slick playing of mandolin (Joe Tozer), guitar (Charlotte Carrivick), fiddle (Laura Carrivick) and double bass (John Breese) combined with rich harmony singing. With a focus on original writing and re-imagined folk songs taken from a very different perspective, this band is not to be missed.
“…an array of carefully crafted textures; often built on rich harmonic foundations…full of freshness and light.” – FATEA Magazine
