The Redhills are based in Warwickshire and have been playing traditional music in their current line up since 2015

Playing “louder and prouder” than your average folk rockers, the overall effect is of a lively & tight rock band, but there can be almost anything from the traditional music canon of the British Islands folded into their arrangements – a song of the sea, lively jigs and reels, a broadsheet tale of ‘orrible infamy and murder, a street cry or a hornpipe. Often several of the above in one number! They occasionally drop in the odd original song, a folky cover, a Zappa number or a dub arrangement of a trad piece when the mood takes them..

The band have played at both mainstream folk and “non folky” festivals and clubs, bars, pubs and other events all over the midlands and further afield. Redhills’ performances are always lively, energetic and fun. Several reviewers have described their music as “infectious” (in a nice way!) and it is not uncommon to see audiences get up and spontaneously start to dance.

The Redhills are: Maria Barham (vocals, acoustic guitar and whistles), Jim Black (guitars and vocals), Nick Ellison (Fiddle, Mandolin and vocals), Nick Mew (bass, guitars, vocals) and Nate Walker (Percussion).
