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.

"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."
