Regularly compared to the likes of Alison Krauss & Union Station and Laura Marling, their musical style pulls influence from both Americana and UK Folk traditions. Fronted by the stunningly distinctive voice of Jade Rhiannon, supported by rich vocal harmonies and sensitive acoustic musicianship, The Willows have a distinctively refreshing sound that continues to captivate and inspire audiences everywhere they go. 'They sort of straddle the worlds between Americana and English roots music and do it in a very very deft way’ (Mike Harding Folk Show).
