Wildwood Kin are an acclaimed anglo/americana trio from Exeter in Devon comprising of two sisters, Beth and Emillie Key and their cousin Meghann Loney. The music is a mix of their own beautiful and thought provoking original songs with a few stunning arrangements of some better known covers. Their voices meld perfectly in effortless and sublime close harmony and they accompany themselves on a range of acoustic instruments. In 2015 the girls were shortlisted for a major BBC Radio Music Award and in 2016 their debut single Warrior Daughter spent several weeks on the Radio 2 playlist. Their tracks have notched several million streams on Spotify. They headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Somersault festival and played numerous festivals including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Beautiful Days as well as a headline tour in the Alps.
