Glymjack is an English folk act Acoustic calls "as good as contemporary folk comes".
Led by singer-songwriter Greg McDonald, Glymjack generally play live as an acoustic trio with Greg joined by fiddle virtuoso Gemma Gayner and bassist Dickon Collinson, delivering a high energy, harmony-rich set of hard-hitting originals, English folk songs and fiddle tunes. For bigger gigs Glymjack expands to a six piece festival band line-up.
Featuring Show of Hands legends Phil Beer, Steve Knightley and Miranda Sykes, Glymjack’s debut album Light the Evening Fire has been a critical hit: "spectacular" - Maverick, "Wow!" - Tom Robinson, BBC 6music, "folk-roots with attitude" - Froots.
The term “Glymjack” is Victorian criminal underworld slang for a street child who led strangers through the streets of London at night with a lantern.
