Just Love This Band!
Modern folk based on great traditions.With their sound based on percussive fingerpicked guitar, Beggar's Bridge take great inspiration from British revivalists such as Davey Graham, Martin Carthy, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Richard Thompson.
They create memorable tunes with compelling lyrics that convey tales of people, places and events, in the best traditions of folk music, with the added dimension of a modern perspective, and their song-stories rarely fail to engage the listener from start to finish.
