Glymjack is the folk-roots project of songwriter Greg McDonald, described as “enough to remind you why you got into music in the first place” by BBC DJ Tom Robinson.

Featuring Show of Hands legends Phil Beer and Steve Knightley, debut album Light the Evening Fire has taken the UK folk scene by storm, with airplay across BBC radio, and Acoustic declaring Glymjack “as good as contemporary folk comes”.

Live, Glymjack’s acoustic trio line-up of Greg, plus fiddle virtuoso Gemma Gayner, and melodeon player Saul Bailey, delivers hard-hitting original songs and English folk music leavened with plenty of laughs and bonhomie, and a take-no-prisoners energy which has brought the house down at festivals from Cambridge Folk Festival to Broadstairs Folk Week.

Away from Glymjack, Greg plays in The Phil Beer Band and composes film music. Greg’s award-winning songs have been called “passionate, powerful and poetic – genius” (Rolling Stone), “inspired” (The Times) and “captivating” (Q magazine).

The term “Glymjack” is Victorian criminal underworld slang for a street child who led strangers through the streets of London at night with a lantern.
