Du Glas offer their own brand of acoustic folk combining influences from Americana and country rock. Born out of the vibrant Cornish music scene their sound is inventive and energetic.
It all began in 2016 when Du Glas (Cornish for ‘black’ and ‘blue’) began their adventure with Lucy Osborne (lead singer) and Anthony Power (guitarist and songwriter) performing at open mic nights in West Cornwall. With Lucy’s background in theatre and Anthony’s catchy melodies, the duo captured audiences’ hearts with their emotional and dynamic performances. They have since teamed up with local talent including the rhythm master Kevin Cook (drums), the groove machine David Gourley (bass) and the sweet sounds of Lou Peixinha (flute and violin) and together this spirited group mould their different musical tastes to create a diverse set of folk/country rock.
In December 2018 Du Glas released their debut album ‘Too Many Ghosts’ which led them to play music festivals across the west country including Cornwall Folk Festival and the main stage at Wonder Fields, Exeter. The year 2020 has not got them down as the band have been busy with online appearances and have released a number of singles including ‘I Can Buddy’ which was described by The Mail on Sunday as an ‘anthem of the fierce Cornish women’. They are now hard at work on their next album and are looking forward to their busy calendar of gigs and festivals in 2021.
