Three Pilgrims are a guitar and vocal blues/folk trio from London formed 2013 by Paul Wassif (guitar, banjo, vocals), Mark Abis (guitar, vocals, harmonica) and David Watson (guitar, vocals).
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.

They are currently in pre-prod for their coming-up album in a West London studio.

Settle in for an evening of great songs, sumptuous guitars and interlaced harmonies.
