Magicfolk combine traditional and modern influences, creating music with a powerful, otherworldly atmosphere. Their material ranges from energetic folk reels and eastern European dance tunes to ethereal ballads, progressive rock and psychedelia.
With the magnetic "fey"' voice of Michelle Glover the band also incorporates a fine array of instruments including flute, violin, electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, EWI, bouzouki, piccolo, drums, and more recently, a sprinkling of hurdy gurdy.
"A compelling mix of quality female vocals,
keyboards, flute, acoustic and electric guitars"
Classic Rock Society
As a follow-up to the debut album ‘Magicfolk’ (2007), 'Tales of Power' was released in 2011 - a collection of eleven tracks which continue the journey into the green, mysterious, and "enchanted Kingdom of Magicfolk" (Judas Kiss Magazine). And in 2014 they released a third album 'Saltarello' - a return to folk and eastern style roots with hallmark psychedelic touches.
