ALL RIGHTS RESERVED The Gillies
 
SE London based Folk / Americana acoustic duo, The Gillies write haunting songs with bittersweet vocals that lay over their intertwining guitars. 

Their music is influenced by americana and folk traditions. In their lyrics they often return to the times when they lived in Norfolk, recollecting places like the iconic Red Lodge Cafe on the A11 and Captain Americas Heavenly Hamburgers.

They will be releasing their new album  "No Hiding Place' in the next month  and filming a new video in The Red Lodge Cafe .

So far this year they have supported Gordon Giltrap and Jill Jackson, played Hope Fest and its only June.  

Last year they played in and around London and returning to their home town Norfolk, playing The Soapbox stage Folk East and Deepdale Festival.

Susan plays a Harmomy Tenor Guitar - Mark (Gilly) plays a Gibson J45
