About this Act

Cardboard Fox are an exciting, young acoustic band who are pushing the boundaries of contemporary bluegrass and folk music. Consisting of four established musicians on the UK music scene, twin sibling harmonies and virtuosic solos, this band is not to be missed!

They were the winners of the 2015 Spiral Earth Award for Best Debut, Cardboard Fox are an exciting new four piece with a fast growing fan base. All of them  have their roots in bluegrass but their collective influences reach much further and this shows in their music. Formed in late 2013 in Bath, England, the band features the sibling harmonies of the Carrivick Sisters, Charlotte and Laura on guitar/vocals and fiddle/vocals respectively, the extraordinary talents of young mandolin player Joe Tozer and the driving and technically demanding double bass playing and harmony vocals of John Breese.

With a focus on original songs plus a large amount of classics from act such as Joni Michael and Bob Dylan and energetic live shows, this is a group of musicians who are very, very excited about what this line up can create and that’s what makes this acoustic quartet so special.


“…an array of carefully crafted textures; often built on rich harmonic foundations, full of freshness and light.”

– FATEA Magazine
