Unsung Roots

Multi-instrumental folk duo featuring Seth Bye and Katie Griffin.

More Information

We owe so many thanks to this young duo after becoming an eleventh hour replacement for our 2015 line-up.

Seth Bye & Katie Griffin are a multi-instrumental folk duo who blur the edges between traditional music and contemporary styles. Their diversity in style ranges from jazz to Indian classical, all embraced with a folk-twist.

The duo's songs are enhanced by the use of close harmony with their two voices blending effortlessly. Their instruments include violin, banjo, guitar and accordion.

The duo conquer the limitations of a two man band by using looping technologies, enabling them to build vast soundscapes that could match that of a full band.

Seth and Katie are working on separate projects these days. Katie has been described as one of the country's top banjo players, and Seth Bye has since performed with the Giffords Circus band and with The Destroyers at the 2022 Commonwealth Games opening event.
