Multi instrumentalist duo The Kimberleys released their first album in June 2018, a collection of traditional folk songs from the British Isles. 


Isobel and Jim are fast gaining a reputation for exhilarating live performances with appearances including Derby Folk Festival, Tribal Earth, Folk On The Dock and supporting AMA Award winner Robert Vincent on his national tour November 2018.

Their honest arrangements, exceptional musicianship and glorious familial harmonies combine to make an impact much greater than their two piece line up, it is a little magical to witness.

Exciting bookings are being announced all the time on the website, on Facebook and via their mailing list.
