Formed in summer 2015.
Folk and Americana trio specialising in original songs and our own arrangements of traditional and lesser known folk songs.
We are recognised for our striking use of close harmony singing, often a cappella, and our diverse range of instruments such as cello, Irish bouzouki, classical and steel string guitar, and percussion.
During the past year we have performed at various festivals, such as the Wild Tree Fair, Folk East, Mersea Food & Drink Festival, Harwich Festival of the Arts, and recently played support for Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage and Belshazzar's Feast at Colchester Arts Centre.
We also support many local music events and live music sessions.
Columbines are available to perform for various private events, including house concerts, festivals, weddings, art private views, book launches, small gigs in the corner of cafes - we enjoy playing small venues as well as larger events and are always happy to plan a set to suit the occasion.
We are based in North Essex/South Suffolk but willing to travel.
