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.

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 Tenor Guitar - Mark (Gilly) plays a Gibson J45

In March 2018 they will be releasing a new album 'No Hiding Place'
