Contemporary folk/acoustic duo Gilmore & Roberts combine award-winning songwriting with astounding musicianship and their trademark harmonies to create a powerful wall of sound. A Problem Of Our Kind (released October 2018) is their fifth studio album. Recorded by co-producer Ben Savage (The Willows and Hannah Sanders), the album has some of the most stripped-back arrangements of Gilmore & Roberts’ career so far.
“People and their stories have always been our primary source of inspiration for writing songs,” says Katriona.
