'I absolutely love this'

Jericho Keys - BBC Introducing


York-based band Mikkelsson present a mixture of original songs and instrumental material with roots in folk, americana and blues.

In 2015, cofounder and fiddle player Holly Brandon joined together with multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Tom Mikkelsson, who had recorded his debut solo album ‘On The Pebble’ in Glasgow the previous year.

The duo quickly progressed from playing ceilidh tunes to original songs. Collaborations with other exciting musicians have expanded the band’s sound to include vocal harmonies, percussion, accordion, keys and woodwind. Mikkelsson’s love of live performance has resulted in a large bank of material recorded in the band’s 2017 debut EP 'Mikkelsson', recently featured on BBC Introducing.
