Sairie are a three piece band based in East Sussex comprising: Emma Morton (vocals, autoharp), Jon Griffin (vocals, guitar) and Andy Thomas (bass).
Our music has been described as sparse and delicate, The Wire said that it retains the English folk tradition nurtured by Anne Briggs and Shirley Collins. Folk Radio UK de scribed our sound as utterly spellbinding and beautiful
The band was formed in 2018 by Emma and Jon who had been playing together in Brighton folk group Lutine. To date we have released two 7 singles on the Fenny Comp ton and Gardners Delight labels, a self released EP (distributed by Hudson Records), and a digital only EP produced remotely during the Covid lock down. All of which have gar nered critical praise.
In 2020 we were due to start work on our debut album but then Covid happened and un able to meet up even to practice we distracted ourselves by working remotely on a series of covers of songs from movies that we loved, this project soon took on a life on its own and became the long digital-only EP The Cinder Sheet which we released at the end of last year (also distributed by Hudson Records). The Cinder Sheet also received a lot of praise critically and beguiled Stewart Lee who wrote about it in The Idler Magazine.
Now, with the long distraction ended we are at work demoing our first album, this will be, with the exception of one traditional piece, a collection of all original songs.

Anticipation grows for where Sairie can take their open-eared psych-folk vision next. Folk Radio UK
