Glorishears are always in great demand for Dances, Clubs and Festivals, as in fact are all the members of the band individually, and you can always be sure of a "good do" when any of this group are around, be it for dance, song, instrumental, workshops or whatever.
Elaine - This is a second spell with the band for Elaine, having made a temporary "retirement" to bring up her family - who have become really talented musicians themselves - and have been known to play in with the band on occasions Originally on keyboards, since rejoining she has featured as lead melody on accordion and has made quite a name for herself, appearing as a musician at Festivals and Folk Camps - Elaine ensures all the Glorishears music has a strong melodic lead.
Dave - Is the newest member of the band, but joined with a wealth of experience as a musician in various ceilidh bands, and is certainly no stranger to the wider folk music scene having performed in various groups (both a-cappella and instrumental) and as a solo performer both within folk and classical music circles Dave's classical training brings a new dimension to the band, with a true acoustically sounding guitar which ranges from gentle classically influenced passages to raunchy rock and jazz rifts and rhythms.
Malc - has been with the band since the beginning and has a vast experience of folk song and dance music (and beyond with previous experience in brass bands and rock bands!). In Glorishears he uses an Electric 5-string fretless Bass to lay down a really rocky beat for the up-tempo numbers and adds subtle mellow bass to the slower numbersMalc is well known throughout the Folkscene as a singer, guitarist, and electric and acoustic bass player, presenter/MC and organiser of numerous folk events - he has run folk clubs, concerts, festivals and other events for well over fifty years. He has recently also been involved in a couple of albums featuring top folk performers
