Ye Vagabonds release their much anticipated self-titled debut album at The Cobblestone this October.
The band started recording demos for this album about two years ago, but the songs themselves began their lives, some of them, years earlier. In their bedrooms and kitchens, in fields and garden sheds, over the course of many hours, over many weeks and months their raw material was distilled from the air. Then they hammered and stretched them and turned them over and made them new a dozen times, consciously and unconsciously, before they found the forms in which they now arrive. We look forward to sharing them with you.

“They remind me of my first days at ‘Les Cousins’ in Soho in 1965… Ye Vagabonds are a modern expression of a tradition that is truly robust and important to these islands.” – Roy Harper
“Going backwards to go forwards, [Ye Vagabonds] look not to modern day influence to inspire their sound but prefer to absorb and reflect the most genuine leanings of deep tradition, playing folk music that resonates as pure and honest as it has since time immemorial. In an age where styles have a limited shelf life, and musicians so often live by definition of their sell-by date, Ye Vagabonds make music that honours timeless sincerity with acoustic fireside storytelling that will sound as current a hundred years from now as it has a hundred generations past.” – Myles O Reilly (Arbutus Yarns)
