Description

Giles Lewin was the founder member of the much respected Irish trad band After Hours, as well as medieval group the Dufay Collective. He formed the duo Alba, exploring the music of the troubadours, and spent time in the Sinai desert learning Egyptian fiddle and dance styles. He has been part of two very different but equally innovative bands, the acclaimed Bellowhead (which he helped found in 2004 before leaving last year) and the Carnival Band, the multi-faceted outfit that he has been a member of for the past twenty years much of it spent in collaboration with folk legend Maddy Prior, whom he recently helped realise her first acoustic album in forty years and accompanied at the BBC Electric Proms.
