Long Lankin are Marion Gray, Amy Jane Hardy and Tanya Jackson.
They are multi-instrumentalists whose inventive interpretations resonate strongly with traditionalists and contemporary musicians alike.
Taking much-loved material from England, Scotland, America and Scandinavia, their arrangements add a touch of modern storytelling to a song, heightening the drama and emotion within the music, while allowing each story to tell itself.
Based in London, the group have a diverse wealth of combined musical experience that includes punk-folk band Neck, bluegrass rockers Hayseed Dixie, classical fusion singers Mediaeval Baebes, the London Bulgarian Choir, and Folkworks.
These varied influences give the group their individual sound, as does their united enthusiasm for a good tune and an interesting tale!
