After over 30 years of playing for dances all over the Midlands and even further afield, the band decided to "call it a day" at the end of 2023 - This site remains as a memory of all the good times we had!

Glorishears are:


Accordion & Keyboards

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


Guitar & Vocals

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


Bass, Guitar & Vocals

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 numbers

Malc 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 fourty years. He has recently also been involved in a couple of albums featuring top folk performers
