About David Grubb and the High Rise Band

Folk Band
Cardiff
A unique breed of folk band combining jazz, blues, and classical, underpinned by traditional celtic roots.

“Emotionally charged and touching… Highly melodious, appealingly catchy, even hypnotic at times” (The Living Tradition). David Grubb’s unique brand of composition amalgamates folk, jazz, blues and classical, all underpinned by his Scottish traditional roots. David - on fiddle and mandolin - along with his High Rise Band, bring together an array of seemingly disparate musical elements. From a riot of galloping beats and strings, to melancholic, reflective and haunting melodies the next, the music weaves and wanders a remarkable journey through imagined soundscapes. David’s critically acclaimed debut title ‘High Rise’ - released in 2014 - was described as “an album of wondrous beauty” (Folk Radio UK). Always pushing musical boundaries, he is currently working on new material for a follow up album.
