Greenfinch is a Glasgow-based five-piece that perform folk-inflected songs built on a warm bed of intertwining guitars and ethereal vocals – in English and Gaelic. There will generally be two acoustic guitars and two slightly confused hippies, but there are often also several other superb musicians playing a host of instruments and looking after the longhairs.The sound is folk/Americana and influenced by the likes of Midlake, Fionn Regan, Mark Kozelek, Iron & Wine, Field Music, Nick Drake, Wilco, King Creosote, M. Ward, Neil Young, Devendra Banhart and the Delgados.
Greenfinch has been performing in Scotland for several years in various guises from solo acoustic to seven-piece with glockenspiel, piano, violin, cello and trumpet. Recently an urge to spread their wings produced performances at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Mugstock festival, Stereo, Maggie May’s, The Record Factory, Oxjam, Nice N’ Sleazy, BOX and Live at Troon festival. The spring will see the release of a six track EP and a short tour before the festival season begins anew.
