Described by Folk Radio UK as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of
musicians in the folk world and beyond”, they take self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles, and with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, produce richly atmospheric arrangements “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator” (Spiral Earth).
Completing the line-up is guitarist Roger Flack, founding member of Celtic-Rock band The Tabs, and percussionist Sacha Trochet.
