We are The Pilgrim Mothers, a five-piece musical collective from the South Coast of England, where the waves crash and the seabirds fly. We make vintage, rootsy, folky, soulful sounds and play brand new original songs about life, love and longing - as well as eclectic covers including songs by Tom Waits, Van Morrison, vintage gospel, blues and wartime tunes.
Celebrating the past, singing for a better now.
We have performed at venues, clubs and festivals all over the country, with gigs that involve the whole audience. You may be moved one moment and find yourself laughing the next, as we go from beautiful, touching songs to wild singalongs.
The Pilgrim Mothers are singer and storyteller Cole Moreton, guitarist David Perry, producer and multi-instrumentalist Bruce Pont and singers Claire Tabraham and Phoene Cave.
