Three Pilgrims


Three Pilgrims is the new acoustic project of Mark Abis, Paul Wassif & David Watson.

The band formed when the paths of three very individual musicians, already accomplished in their own right, fortuitously converged in the fall of 2013. Within a few months of forming, word of mouth ensured a steady increase in attendance at their small West London gigs. Soon Three Pilgrims were to appear at London’s Bush Hall in support of sixties folk singer Beverley Martyn and received invitations to play at various festivals before they even had a chance to write a bio let alone record anything.

In the last year and a half, they have played at various festivals and venues in London and across the country and have been drawing crowds ever since. Among them, Love Supreme Festival, Live On The Wye, The Hawkhurst Vault, Bush Hall, The Drawing Room, Green Note. Embracing both British and American folk & blues traditions, their lyrics are bittersweet, edgy and human. Some are simply heartbreaking. They are currently in pre-prod for their upoming album in a West London studio.

A regular guitarist and collaborator with the late folk guitar legend Bert Jansch, Paul recently played at the Royal Festival Hall Celebration Of Bert Jansch alongside Robert Plant, Bernard Butler and Martin Carthy. Paul has also performed with Eric Clapton, Beth Orton and Joe Walsh, and he recently released his first solo album Looking Up Feeling Down featuring both Jansch and Clapton.
