Robin Gillan has been active on the folk scene for over two decades and is now beginning to gain wider recognition. His music reflects timeless old field recordings of the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s and early commercial country recordings from the 1920’s. Described as a polymath musician, Robin delivers songs with power and sensitivity. His fiddle playing conjures backwoods mountain scenes and soft rainy pastures. Equally adept at 5 string banjo, fiddle, harmonica, guitar and melodeon, Robin draws from the music of the British Isles and the USA. His playing has rawness, balanced by technical ability, producing an archaic sound rarely achieved in the 21st century.

Robin has produced one solo album and recorded with numerous bands and artists, recently working with folk legend, Tom Paley. He has been booked at many festivals and folk clubs over the years, and recently performed at the Cambridge Folk Festival. He is currently available for bookings both as a solo artist, and with his ceilidh band, the Jumping Beans. He also teaches fiddle, banjo and guitar and runs the Black Fen Folk Club in Cambridge

Robin has won several awards for his fiddle and banjo playing and has drawn the attention of such diverse musical figures as Reg Hall, Bruce Molsky, Yehudhi Menuhin and Noel Gallagher.

To compliment Robins set Enoch's Gold Hill Trappers will provide a good-times, hedonistic and borderline "cheesey" approach to the old-time music genre with a repertoire that contains early-bluegrass, early-country, western swing and rockabilly songs as well as the usual Virginia style driving fiddle tunes.

The band features

Valerie Vale on flat picked guitar and vocals

Nick Pimbert on Enoch Rutherford styled banjo

Mark Wallace on fiddle and vocals
