A FAMILY folk trio set to perform at Jurassic Fields in Bridport have announced their latest album.

Wildwood Kin have also released a brand new single, Never Alone, and shared details of their first headline tour.

The group is made up of Meg Loney, who performs alongside her cousins, Emillie and Beth Key, from Exeter. Their debut album Turning Tides, released in 2017, led to performances at Glastonbury and the Royal Albert Hall, and won the band extensive support from Radio 2 and BBC Introducing.

Now returning with their self-titled second album, Wildwood Kin combine vocal harmonies with gentle folk rock melodies, with lyrics addressing themes of love, loss and spirituality. They play instruments including the drums, the guitar and the bouzouki, and the trio's musical inspirations range from Simon & Garfunkel to Fleet Foxes and James Taylor.

Produced and co-written with Ed Harcourt, their latest single is dedicated to Meg's brother, who sadly took his own life.

"Never Alone is about walking and loving someone through a dark place. We knew it had to be honest and hard hitting, but uplifting too," Meg said.

*Wildwood Kin's headline tour will follow a summer of festival performances. Jurassic Fields takes place on July 13 and 14 at Asker Meadow in Bridport, and tickets can be purchased via the festival website.

Tickets for the trio's main tour are available now. The album will be released on October 4 by Silvertone Records/Sony and is available to pre-order now.
