Description

Katriona Gilmore (Tiny Tin Lady) and Jamie Roberts (Kerfuffle) combine fiery fiddle with percussive guitar to produce blazing instrumentals and heart-wrenching songs Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts have been performing together on the folk scene since 2006, while studying together at Leeds College of Music. Their self-penned material ranges from blazing instrumentals to songs which have been described as 'heart-wrenching', spanning all manner of subjects, to contemporary arrangements of traditional songs.

Jamie's dextrous percussive and lap-style guitar work is a visual as well as a sonic delight, while Katriona's intricate fiddle playing shifts seamlessly from sensitive to fiery and back again in the blink of an eye. Their unique sound has been recognised with several accolades including Bright Young Things 2007 and New Roots 2007 and they have supported, among others, Swarb's Lazarus, Jez Lowe, Nancy Kerr & James Fagan and Van Eyken, at festivals, clubs and theatres. 'Shadows & Half Light', the duo's first full length recording, makes the most of Katriona and Jamie's multi-instrumental skills ? mandolin, banjo, cajon and even trombone can be heard alongside the usual fiddle and guitar, as well as guest vocals and piano from Jamie's sister Kathryn Roberts.

With the release of their long-awaited first album, Katriona and Jamie are touring more extensively than ever before and enthralling audiences across the country.
