Bio

The Gilberts are a sibling contemporary folk trio bringing vibrant three part harmonies, soulful lyricism and a melodious alchemy to their songs and stages. The Gilberts are Frieden, Reuben and Maisie. They were born in the UK but they grew up at music festival grounds around Nova Scotia, first as toddlers trundling around muddy or sun-baked fields, then when a little older they started stepping up to open mics. Soon people were asking them to perform at events, and then came invitations to perform on festival main stages. The Gilberts have performed at Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, Deep Roots in Wolfville, and Full Circle at Newport. They have played dozens of other gigs and developed a reputation for delivering engaging and memorable shows. Diverse musical influences inform their song-writing, performance, and choices including choral music, musical theatre, 1970s soft rock and pop, singer-songwriters, and folk music from the 1960s to the current scene. The Gilberts emigrated to Canada from the UK in 2003 as young children - becoming immersed in Nova Scotia’s dynamic music scene and receiving helping hands and words from countless musicians, educators and supporters who have shared their time and experience so generously.
