Mike Turnbull is a multi-instrumentalist who has the knack for writing well crafted songs with a story to tell. Influences are taken from his home region of the Lakes, around the UK & beyond.
The Valiant Knights is Mike's folk rock band with Dave Penningtonon drums, Rob Penrice on bass & Rob Steels on guitar/mandolin. Their sound & style is original modern folk, upbeat energetic foot stompers with a story to tell! (Think Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys, Seth Lakeman & Steve Knightly).
"Mike Turnbull is a singer-songwriter from the Lake District whose main instruments are tenor guitar, banjo, mandolin & octave mandola. Their sound coupled with the sources of his songs suggests Seth Lakeman and, in truth, that isn't a bad comparison. He certainly has the same drive and energy." (Dai Jeffries – Folking.com)
