Norwich based genre blending folk band ‘The Rabbitts’ are acoustic at heart but experimental in nature; they set out to avoid the well trodden path and instead define their own unique sound with creative harmonies, fingerstyle guitar arrangements, dreamy mandolin lines, and an intricate yet impactful rhythm section.
Their music has been featured on BBC Radio 6 Music, and was also included on the best of 2021, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire Folk Show. To date their Spotify catalogue has received over 350,000 streams. On the 5th of May 2023 they released their 2nd full length album, ‘Love’. The primary inspiration is given away in the album title, however they also sought inspiration from their relationships with the natural world and society, whilst simultaneously embracing the sometimes abstract nature of their creativity.
