Fay Brotherhood and Lee Burns

Fay Brotherhood & Lee Burns from Coalville/Barrow on Soar create an earthy, gutsy brand of pagan folk, ranging in subject matter from local history, to mythology and folk lore and the natural world, rooted strongly in the English folk tradition. Fay Brotherhood's distinctive voice, and emotive melodies are given a medieval, ethereal dimension by the fiddle and mandolin work of Lee Burns. Fay has been singing and songwriting for many years, but only started gigging in Sept 2010. However she has so far got many gigs under her belt including support slots with Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts, Rory McLeod, Kristina Olsen and The Strawbs.
