Debut EP Launch

“Cross my Heart (and hope to die)

“This genre of music wouldn’t normally be at the top of my list but after listening to their upcoming EP, “Woodlark” have certainly changed my point of view….I highly recommend.” – Greg Donaghy, Unsigned

Playing together for just over a year, “Wood~Lark”, comprising Kate Gisbourne and Michael Jordan have a 20 song original set.

Recent performances include support gigs for Leslie Dowdall, Hazel O Connor and Sarah McQuaid, The Grand Folk Club at The Grand Social and East Coast FM. Their material is contemporary folk and their sound is reminiscent of the territory carved out by Gillian Welch, Civil Wars, Alison Krauss and Fairport Convention. Kate Gisbourne is a singer/songwriter and actress. Her latest film, “All Her Children Fought” was selected for the Tokyo and Belfast film festivals. Michael Jordan trained as a sound engineer, has played in rock bands and produces his own dance music.
