The Kimberleys are a multi instrumentalist duo based in London UK. Their repertoire is drawn from traditional folk songs of the British Isles. Their honest arrangements, exceptional musicianship and glorious familial harmonies combine to make an impact much greater than their two piece line up. It is magical to witness.
The Kimberleys have recorded with folk icons Gordon Giltrap, Andy Cutting (Leveret, Blowzabella, 3 time BBC Radio 2 Folk musician of the year award winner) and Dave Swarbrick (Fairport Convention). They have toured and performed with Wolfscote (Telegraph Best Folk Albums, producer Jim Kimberley), The Albion Band, Julie Felix and cult acid folk innovators Comus.
