My name is Mike Turnbull, I am singer-songwriter based in Kendal. I play across the region solo, or duo/trio - Mike Turnbull & The Safe Kings. (Mike Turnbull on tenor guitar, mandola,banjo, Suzanne Ambrose on double bass & Dave Pennington on cajon & percussion)
Our style is original, melodic, modern-folk. Stories, legends & observations from around Cumbria & the UK, often upbeat, sometimes with energy and the merest touch of Americana - each song, a story to tell!
I have an ep from 2017 - Circlet of Gold, and an album from 2019 - In So Small A Compass, (which features Lukas Drinkwater and Ciaran Algar). We also have a Mike Turnbull & The Safe Kings ep - Courageous Tree, 2020 featuring some of our favourite folk & acoustic artists from Cumbria and beyond!
