We’re pleased to be welcoming Granny’s Attic back to Colchester as part of their 15th anniversary tour.

With exceptional musicianship and boundless energy, Granny’s Attic are going from strength to strength. Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne (melodeon, anglo concertina, vocals), George Sansome (guitar, vocals) and Lewis Wood (violin, vocals) have honed their skills touring the UK and Europe since 2009. They are much loved by audiences up and down the country, with bookings everywhere from Cambridge Folk Festival to Cecil Sharp House.

The trio have been heralded for their lively performances and skilled delivery of traditional material, playing with verve, energy and their own inimitable style. Though grounded in tradition, they are keen to push new boundaries by exploring fresh approaches and writing their own compositions. In October 2021, they released their latest album, The Brickfields, an instrumental collection that sees them reach new heights both as performers and composers. Described by Folk Radio as “one of the most exciting and accomplished English folk acts on the scene right now”, this outstanding trio can hold audiences in the palm of their hand.

“Their high-octane take on English folk has brought a whole new audience to the genre” – The Irish Times

“Great tunes, great energy, great arrangements, great stuff!” – Jon Boden

“A superb folk trio” – RNR Magazine “Traditional folk music taken far beyond its parameters” – Tykes News

Support: Moose
‘Moose’ (Jason Rosser) is well known here as a traditional solo unaccompanied singer with a great voice and as a member of the trio Sound Tradition.
