Ghosts - Cardboard Fox
Our next LCM featured band Cardboard Fox are releasing their great new second album 'Topspin' today. This very multi talented West Country four piece formed in late 2013 in Bath, England, the band features the sibling harmonies of Charlotte and Laura Carrivick (the Carrivick Sisters) on guitar/vocals and fiddle/vocals respectively, the extraordinary talents of young mandolin player Joe Tozer and the driving and technically demanding double bass playing and harmony vocals of John Breese. Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is their excellent first single from the new album 'Ghosts'.
Cardboard Fox are a unique and powerful combination of dexterous instrumental playing, memorable songwriting and energetic live shows. All four musicians have their musical roots in bluegrass but their collective influences reach much further and this shows in their music. The band has toured throughout the UK and Europe as well as a couple of performances in North America, including being the first ever UK band to gain a highly sought after showcase spot at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2016 World of Bluegrass in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Winners of the 2015 Spiral Earth Award for Best Debut, the band followed up on the success of their EP by releasing their first full album, ‘Out of Mind’, in May 2016, followed by their second album 'Topspin' this Spring.
