Offering something for all tastes in folk, INLAY are a forward thinking quartet. With the aid of fiddle, guitar, harmonica, accordion and melodeon, they blend traditional material with self-penned compositions.
Autumn 2017 sees three-time BBC Folk Award nominee, Will Pound join the band to make up the new fourth member of Inlay.
Inlay was always supposed to be a quartet and the band are really excited by what Will is bringing to the group, and look forward to taking this lineup on the road in 2018.
