Released November 2023, Three Galleys is the debut album from Holly and the Reivers. Though firmly rooted in the folk song tradition the trio has a signature sound that comes from being influenced by old time music, supernatural murder ballads, folk horror cinema and political songs.
Holly Clarke (Voice /Guitar), Merle Harbron (Voice/ Fiddle) and Bertie Armstrong (Voice/Banjo) weave their arrangements around these old songs and bring their voices together to create a soundscape that accompanies these old stories. Three Galleys is an album of music that reaches into the depths of the darker side of folk song and brings forth the messages in the songs that are deeply rooted in human experience through History.
‘Brilliant music storytellers, the Reivers – a class act from start to finish’ – Nancy Kerr
