Wildwood Kin: Momentum
Wildwood Kin are an acclaimed anglo/americana trio from the South West UK comprising of sisters Beth and Emillie Key and their cousin Meghann Loney. The music is a mix of their own beautiful and thought provoking originals with a few stunning arrangements of some better known covers. Their voices meld perfectly in effortless and sublime close harmony and they accompany themselves on a range of acoustic instruments.
In 2015 the girls were shortlisted for a major BBC Radio Music Award. In 2016 their debut single Warrior Daughter spent several weeks on the BBC Radio 2 playlist. They have notched up several million streams on Spotify.
They also feature on every track on Seth Lakeman’s top 20 album “Ballads of the Broken Few” produced by the legendary Ethan Johns.
They headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Somersault festival and played festivals such as Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Beautiful Days as well as a headline tour in the Alps. They have toured extensively and supported Texan band “The Oh Hellos” and UK Folk Legend “Seth Lakeman”. They begin 2017 performing at Scotland’s Celtic Connections and at The UK/Americana awards.
Their album is due for release in 2017.
