Celtic Marches and Pulp Cider Co hit the Apple charts (sort of)!
On a beautiful Autumnal afternoon in October, as the dappled sunlight hit our ancient cider apple trees, a sense of magic filled the air, accompanied by the uplifting sounds of a violin and the enchanting melodies of a very special folk song.

The effects were instant: after months of lockdown, separation from our loved ones and deprivation of all the things we love about life - social interaction, pubs, story-telling over a pint with friends....thelatest number from Herefordshire folk band The Kilpecks began to nurture our souls, lift our spirits, move our bodies and transport us to happier times, leaving us with an overwhelming sense that those days will indeed return.
We first met The Kilpecks at a gig in 2019 (remember those - gigs??!!). The band was looking for a sponsor and we couldn't wait to team up with them. The bands latest single, 'Cider in our Hands' is particularly poignant to us! Take a look at the beautiful video, shot in our orchards by the super talented Jonathan Zaurin from LBS Films...
We caught up with lead singer Joseph Emmett to find out more about The Kilpecks, and 'Cider in our Hands.'
