Counter’s Creek are a new contemporary folk band from East London.
Jonathan Taylor plays whistles (high and low) , Tom Newell plays fiddle and banjo and Moss Freed plays guitar. They play mainly original tunes that are rooted in the folk tradition of the British Isles but with a few other influences creeping in from time to time. It’s rhythmic, soulful music and whether the tunes are fast or slow they have a strong sense of groove (in a very acoustic way).
Tom is also in Effra, who are about to release their second album, and Moss is also in Flekd (a crossover folk/jazz group).
We are very happy to have them supporting Jim Moray in 2018!
