Magicfolk are leading UK purveyors of contemporary esoteric psych-folk, producing their own blend of folk, rock, celtic and prog-rock with rich vocal harmonies and an assortment of instruments, in songs with mythological and mystic leanings.
"A raft of magical spells... a silver blade wrapped in lace." (Folkwords)
Founding members Ben and Michelle are into 70's legends like Jethro Tull, Jefferson Airplane, Bowie, Dead Can Dance and Renaissance. Keyboard-player Miki brings a welcome Eastern European flavour, Andy contributes mad psychedelic and rock lead guitar lines, Jo and Amber bring a folk/jazz touch with sax & flute & backing vocals, and Geoff gets his kicks from Greek and South American rhythms.
"Prog rock, celtic tunes and tight vocal harmony, spiked with prickly electric guitar. If you like Fairport Convention, Jethro Tull and Jefferson Airplane, you won't be disappointed." (Pagan Dawn Magazine)
They've also been likened to Pink Floyd, Stone Angel, Dead Can Dance, Led Zepplin, Tir Na Nog, Kate Bush, Trees, Midwinter, Mostly Autumn, White Willow and Mellow Candle.
