Suthering, the musical alias of Julu Irvine & Heg Brignall, have taken the folk scene by storm with their unusual and fresh approach to folk music. Their harmony-rich songs tell tales of struggle and triumph against all odds; of heroes from both their own lives and from stories they have found. Inspired by strong female characters in history, mythology, and personal experience, and with an unusual mix of cascading, dramatic piano; intricate, fingerstyle guitar; flute, whistles and harmonium, Suthering bring an exciting take on folk storytelling with their evocative and distinctive sound.
Windjammer are a trio who cast timeless stories in a context of their own making. They blend self-penned songs and instrumentals with original, genre-bending arrangements of music drawn from the traditions of British folk. Turning unflinchingly from soft, delicate emphasis to shoulder-rolling grind, and from light harmonies to prog-infused instrumentalism, they have a habit of keeping audiences surprised and engaged with ever-changing soundscapes. Their debut album, ?Awaken? (produced by Sean Lakeman), showcases and expands this palette in a studio context.
