Progressive acoustic music.
Stillhouse are a mandolin, guitar, double bass and vocal trio ensemble, presenting original songs and instrumental material with roots in bluegrass and contemporary folk.
They have created a captivating and complex sound characterised by melodic original songs alongside soaring mandolin, guitar and bass-led instrumental pieces with roots in bluegrass, old time and folk melodies.
Not only are they capable of writing and arranging top drawer songs, they have the additional instrumental chops to go with it. This trio will soon be causing a stir. Northern Sky Magazine.
Wonderful musicianship and superbly well-arranged material; Stillhouse completely captivate their audience from the first note they play. This trio is one to watch - Leila Cooper, Moonbeams Festival Director.
They're all such amazing players. It's a rare thing these days, but they do it with finesse and style and it's never showboaty, just pure class- Chris Helme, formerly The Seahorses.
"Rich with the tone and feel of dark Americana, but the vocal style, lyrical content and wry humour set it apart. The production and performance is polished; a confident release from a talented band of musicians."
