The Rails at Fowey Festival


We are delighted to welcome the acclaimed folk/rock band from London, The Rails. Husband and wife team, James Walbourne and Kami Thompson witnessed their debut album Fair Warning (2014) winning several awards including Mojo's folk album of the year and BBC Folk Best Newcomer. Their second album Other People (2017) is described as 'folk rock on steroids'. James was dubbed as a 'teenage prodigy' and has played with musical giants including Son Volt, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Davies, The Pogues and The Pretenders! Described by Nick Hornby as 'an unearthly cross between James Burton, Peter Green and Richard Thompson'. The attuned harmonies of Kami and James are undoubtedly their calling card. Supporting The Rails will be the exceptionally talented singer-songwriter Kirsty Merryn, whose music is heavily anchored in the folk tradition.
