Since their formation at university in late 2010, five-piece folk band The Coach House Company are rapidly becoming known for their uplifting and wholesome sound through dynamic live performances in London and Cambridge. Inspired by the folk heritage of the British Isles, the band fuses traditional jigs, reels and folksongs with rich harmonies, instrumental virtuosity and compelling upbeat rhythms to create a unique folk expression. Original compositions and arrangements form the core of the band’s repertoire, which is also infused with influences from the classical and jazz domains.
The band is made up of Maya Amin-Smith (vocals/violin/mandolin), Patrick Milne (vocals/guitar), Héloïse Werner (vocals/cello), Marianne Schofield (vocals/double bass) and Colin Danskin (vocals/trumpet). The Coach House Company have recently performed at, amongst others, TV Nights at Ronnie Scott’s, the ADC Theatre in Cambridge, where they were described as ‘musically excellent’ in a five-star review from Varsity. 2014 saw the band undertake a solo performance at Cecil Sharp House, where their debut EP was launched.
