About Us

With a sound dubbed as “intriguing, vibrant and fresh” (FATEA Records), Gathering Tides throw folk fusion into unexplored territories. Hailing from Birmingham, their high-energy live shows have been igniting audiences across the UK. From the traditional to the absurd, the quartet’s sound flows effortlessly between explosive riffs, intricate percussive patterns and blazing guitars; all held together with “fantastic fiddle-driven energy” (BBC Bristol).

Gathering Tides’ unique blend of fiddle, electric guitar, bass and world-kit continues to astound audiences across the country, earning their place on major stages such as Boomtown Fair, How the Light Gets In and Warwick Folk Festival.


“A fine new folk/fusion band with fantastic fiddle-driven energy and musicianship. Not to be missed!”
