'Unfortunately George Sansome is unwell and unable to play for us in Teignmouth tomorrow evening (Friday 21st June).

Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne and Lewis Wood are two thirds of Granny's Attic and are really looking forward to still entertaining us all with their amazing tunes and songs and will still deliver a great quality performance as always which will be thoroughly enjoyable. They will do sets of separate material and play some together at the end of the evening.

Teignmouth Folk Festival and Granny's Attic are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
This was difficult to foresee and of course, most importantly, we wish George well.'


With exceptional musicianship and boundless energy, Granny’s Attic are going from strength to strength. Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne (melodeon, anglo concertina, vocals), George Sansome (guitar, vocals) and Lewis Wood (violin, vocals) have honed their skills touring the UK and Europe since 2009. They are much loved by audiences up and down the country, with bookings everywhere from Cambridge Folk Festival to Cecil Sharp House.

The trio have been heralded for their lively performances and skilled delivery of traditional material, playing with verve, energy and their own inimitable style. Though grounded in tradition, they are keen to push new boundaries by exploring fresh approaches and writing their own compositions. In October 2021, they released their latest album, The Brickfields, an instrumental collection that sees them reach new heights both as performers and composers. Described by Folk Radio as “one of the most exciting and accomplished English folk acts on the scene right now”, this outstanding trio can hold audiences in the palm of their hand.
