Du Glas offer their own brand of country rock combining influences from Americana and folk music. Born out of the vibrant Cornish music scene their unique 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 song writer) performing at open mic nights and jam sessions in West Cornwall. With Lucy’s background in theatre and Anthony’s catchy tunes, the duo captured audiences’ hearts with their emotional and dynamic performances. Teaming up with various local talent it wasn’t long before they were playing regular gigs and festivals. The group has since grown to include the rhythm master Kevin Cook on drums, the groove machine David Gourley on bass and the sweet sounds of Lou Peixinha on flute and violin.
Together this spirited group mould their different musical tastes to create a diverse set of country rock/folk. In December 2018 Du Glas released their debut album ‘Too Many Ghosts’ and have since been playing music festivals across the west country including Cornwall Folk Festival and the main stage at Wonder Fields, Exeter. Over the last 6 months the band 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’.
