About Gilmore & Roberts

Welcome to our Gilmore & Roberts Patreon Experience! We are Katriona Gilmore (vocals, fiddle, mandolin) and Jamie Roberts (vocals, guitar) and we started playing together in 2006 while studying at Leeds College of Music. Since our first nervous outing to an open mic night, we’ve released 6 albums, toured with Fairport Convention, played hundreds of gigs and festivals and received 3 nominations at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. (As a side-line, we also bought a house and had a small child.)

We’ve been making a living solely from music for nearly ten years now and for us, it’s a real DIY labour of love. We write our own songs, book our own gigs, release our albums on our own label, design our own posters & flyers, update our own website & social media, plus all the admin that goes along with all that. We are truly ‘independent musicians’ - we work hard to make it work for us, and it does…until something like a pandemic comes along, forcing gig cancellations and (for us) a huge loss of income needed to pay the bills of everyday living.

We’d been considering setting this up for some time as we realise that now we are parents, the way we’ve toured in the past won’t be as possible in the future. We wanted to find a way to continue creating and releasing music that didn’t involve so many 2am drives up the M1 but which still makes it accessible to our beloved fans, wherever they may be. The current situation has precipitated our decision to make NOW the time to launch this, but we intend to keep it running long after Corona is once again just another lager in the well-stocked aisles of our supermarkets.

In return for your Patreonage, we’ll be presenting you with online gigs, brand new songs, never-before-heard original demos of our back catalogue in their very first skeletal forms, tutorial videos of how to play some of our songs, cover versions of songs, ‘Behind The Song’ videos, exclusive performances, handwritten lyric sheets, credits on our future album sleeves, guestlist tickets for our shows and more. We look forward to bringing you along on our creative journey!

With Many Thanks,
Katriona & Jamie
