Gig Information

Mishra are a global folk duo with strong roots in U.K folk, currently on their debut tour of Aotearoa NZ. They weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and has brought them awards recognition since their formation in 2017. Kate Griffin on vocals, banjo, and dobro (The Magpies) and Ford Collier on low whistle, calabash/percussion, and guitar (BBC R2 Folk Award nominated The Drystones) are the song writing partnership behind Mishra, drawing on their unique base of influences that encompasses folk music of the UK and America, Indian classical music, and soul to create a surprisingly accessible sound that audiences instantly connect to.

After a jam-packed summer 2022 including a main stage performance at Cambridge Folk Festival, Mishra have been working on a hotly tipped collaboration with singer Deepa Shakthi, which toured the UK in spring 2023 with funding from Arts Council England and Help Musicians. Mishra were also 2022 winners of the Danny Kyle Open Stage Award, which saw them perform at Celtic Connections in January 2023.

In 2018 they won the Christian Raphael prize at Cambridge Folk Festival, which funded the release of their debut album The Loft Tapes the following year. The Loft Tapes received critical acclaim and national radio play, and Mishra accompanied the album release with a U.K wide tour. Their latest album Reclaim came out October 29th 2021 and received critical acclaim including reviews in Songlines and Mojo.
