Grey Wolf
THIS EVENT HAS PRIORITY ACCESS TO FRIENDS OF LUDLOW ASSEMBLY ROOMS UNTIL 22 APRIL. PLEASE ENTER THE PROMO CODE YOU HAVE BEEN SENT TO RELEASE TICKETS FOR THIS EVENT

Grey Wolf is an acoustic Americana/old-time folk band from the Welsh Marches playing traditional instruments such as banjo, fiddle, guitar, dulcimer, mandolin and double bass alongside fine vocal and harmony singing. The band has headlined several of the prestigious UK’s Old Time American Music and Dance Festivals and has appeared on radio, at folk clubs, festivals, and music and literary venues throughout the UK.

Grey Wolf was born in 2010 when Jim Allen and Martin Thomas began playing as a duo blending their shared love of American old time music with British folk music. These two gifted multi instrumentalists were joined by a third some years later – the immensely talented Ben Walsh. The fourth member of the band, bass player Andy Offer joined them in 2021.
The Birmingham News said of Grey Wolf’s performance at the Kitchen Garden Cafe in Birmingham “There’s an equality to the group’s spread of sound, but each player is continually soloing-in-motion, rising up in turn, according to where the ears of the audience might alight at any one moment”.
Jim started playing banjo in his early teens and played in several bands around the Midlands. He has always tried to combine humour and entertainment with his excellent musicianship and in addition to forming and leading Grey Wolf Jim is well known for running ‘The Floor’ which for ten years served a loyal and enthusiastic audience with some of the best acoustic music the UK had to offer.
Martin is a multi-instrumentalist playing guitar, mandolin and dulcimer. He is a prolific song writer and a talented vocalist and has written much of the band’s self-penned material.
Ben is a professional musician working with a number of bands nationally and internationally. He is a multi-instrumentalist contributing fiddle, mandolin, guitar and vocals to the Grey Wolf sound.

Andy plays upright bass and is from the ‘less is more’ school of bass playing. He seeks to complement rather than just accompany his colleagues in Grey Wolf.
