Mishra are a global folk collective with strong roots in UK folk. They weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and has brought them awards including the Christian Raphael Prize and Celtic Connection’s Danny Kyle award. Kate Griffin on vocals, banjo, and dobro (The Magpies) and Ford Collier on low whistle, calabash/percussion, and guitar (BBC R2 Folk Award-nominated The Drystones) are the songwriting partnership behind Mishra, drawing on their unique base of influences that encompasses folk music of the UK and America, Indian classical music, and soul to create a surprisingly accessible sound that audiences instantly connect to.
Their new album Reclaim came out October 29th and received critical acclaim including reviews in Songlines and Mojo. Recent performing highlights include supporting Jon Boden at Assembly Festival Coventry.
