Up and coming folk group Kirsty Bromley Trio will be performing at the next meeting of Ely Folk Club.

The band is scheduled to appear at the club’s St Mary’s Street venue on Wednesday, July 15.

The band started life as a solo act, with Kirsty Bromley quickly making a name for herself on the UK folk scene.

When the bookings for festivals started to come in, Kirsty decided she would like to add another dimension to her performances so she approached three young musicians who were long-time friends from the UK folk scene; Oli Matthews, Simon Dumpleton and Philippe Barnes.

Oli joined Kirsty on the main stage at her first ever gig at Shepley Spring Festival, in 2011.

Philippe and Simon joined in June 2011and the new band made their debut performance at Warwick Folk Festival in July 2011.

The band remains true to their traditional folk roots while bringing together traditional, jazz and contemporary music styles.
