Hebble are:

- Sam Hodgson (aka Samh) - singer-songwriter, guitarist, & bouzouki player

- Aidan Kilroy - bodhran player & singer

- Helena Drumm - cellist & singer

Hailing originally from Ireland and both sides of the Pennines, these experienced performers combine instruments with harmony vocals to play foot-tapping trad. songs and tunes. 

Their repertoire includes trad. Irish, English and Scottish songs and tunes, as well as originals by Samh inspired by local history and landscape. They also like to throw some Appalachian and Americana into the mix from time to time.

‘Celtic tales of wonder and woe swept from over sea and valley. The deep thud of skin drum, the soaring sweep of the cello, the light breeze of guitar and bouzouki’

‘Folk standards, catchy choruses, belting rhythms, and tunes to make the heart sing.’

Hebble formed in February, 2022

Rochdale Folk Festival
