‘Country, rock, folk and attitude. Rebellion served with a pasty’ Adrian Jones, London Folk 2021
Songs of miners, mutiny and murder; starvation, sirens and smugglers, that’s what you get when you leave this bunch of Cornish renegades alone with a load of wood, strings and drum skins for too long!! Du Glas offer their own brand of original roots music, combining influences from Americana and British folk-rock (and whatever else takes their fancy at the time). Their energy, humour and love of gin has incited such madness that audiences have thrown away their pints, danced in a downpour and bounced on the bar like a Bruckheimer film (you know the one we mean). You’d be a fool to miss it.
Since 2016 the band have been rocking their way across the south of England, including Wimborne Folk Festival and Chickenstock. They haven’t neglected their homeland either, wowing crowds (if leaving them slightly shell-shocked) at the Cornwall Folk Festival, the St Ives September Festival, Penlee Park Open Air Theatre and the Acorn Theatre. Du Glas are now busy writing material for a third album and looking forward to hitting the road again to inflict the rest of the UK with their fierce attitude, thumping rhythms and rousing tunes that will make you lose all your inhibitions, roar till your throats sore and leave you talking like a pirate for the rest of the night.
‘I love the gutsy energy of the Penzance band’s singer, Lucy Osborne, combined with the upbeat, sometimes angry, songwriting of Anthony Power’. Adrian Jones – Folk London
‘Wonderful vocals and musicianship and an amazing stage presence, Du Glas should never be missed.’ Steve Appleby – Cornwall Folk Festival
Excellent, absolutely fantastic’ Craig Freeman, WKS on Coast FM
‘[Too Many Ghosts] is such a beau-tiful song, we absolutely loved the strong folk instrumentation and the lovely vocal harmonies’ – Maisonneuve Music
