Mikkelsson is a York-based band playing original songs and folk music.
In 2015, cofounder and violinist Holly Brandon joined together with 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, and mix folk, americana and blues with experimental music technology and effects. 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', which was recently featured on BBC Introducing.
