“Moorland Folk play purely for fun, and it shows!
We thrive on the highs of a good gig and enjoy live music in the raw, unpredictable and impromptu. We are more into the relaxation and “therapy” of sharing a fine song, than into musical correctness, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously"

So what’s this band like then?
Brilliant lead guitar, powerful rhythms and a great bass, a tremendous selection of wonderful songs many featuring 3 part harmony and uplifting choruses. Requests always welcomed. Dylan's own unique zany songs are a real treat. Years of  making music and fun together results in a thrilling show everytime.
