Goblin Band

Goblin Band formed organically from intimate sessions of the same name ran out of the HobGoblin Music, a folk music instrument shop in Central London, and organised by a group of queer folk obsessive friends and shop employees. Relative newcomers on the thriving UK traditional folk circuit, Goblin Band are a collection of queer musicians based around Hobgoblin Music, a folk-instrument shop with a branch located in central London. Inspired as much by medieval and early music, as they are by the folk traditions of Britain and abroad, the six-piece set their stall on re-energising timeless, much-journeyed songs for an ever-growing new community of young folk enthusiasts. Debut EP ‘Come Slack Your Horse!’ – featuring songs dating back as early as the mid-17th century – sees the band doing just that.
