Happy August!

Hello!
Another month passes and we’re well into summer! We had an amazing time at Valhalla Viking Festival and we’re going to make a video for one of the songs we learnt for the event. Now we’re looking forward to being off to Warwick Castle to play for the Dragon Slayer Event (you’ll only see us if you book banquet tickets). In the middle of that we’re off to Symmetry and then we’re off to Whitby Folk Week and that will definitely be a lot of fun!
Have a great August!

The Northman

Hello!
We’re not quite sure where May got to! It was March just yesterday! May has been very exciting! We finally got to see The Northman – exciting because this was a lockdown project we spent a lot of time on! We were involved in the project from the very beginning and were the last ones to record at Air Studios. It was a really large part of our lockdown lives and it’s quite emotional to finally see the fruits of our labour! We are liberally sprinkled over the whole sound track! We played pretty much the whole range of instruments we have! But you’ll definitely hear the pipes on To The Games and the bone flute on the End Credits! It was an amazing project to be involved with and if you watch it – stay through the credits and you’ll see us!

A Busy April on the road!

Hello!
The year is piling through and April is super busy! We finish our two week stint at Halsway Manor, followed by a quick trip up to Scotland. We then finish the first half of the month with two Zoom dances for Symmetry.

We’re excited to be working for English Heritage over St George’s Day. Jonny has been busy creating a wonderful soundtrack for the pageant. You’ll have to go along to find out more! At the same time it’s World Nyckelharpa Day – so keep a eye out on social media for all the videos going out! Then we finish the month for May Hey Days playing as Purcell’s Polyphonic Party. It’s certainly all hands to the pump this month!

Hello!
We are so excited to be doing our Burns Night celebration for Live To Your Living Room in a couple of weeks! Just like last year we’ll be piping in the haggis, addressing the haggis, having a dance and singing Burns songs. We’ll throw in a bunch of Scottish songs and pipe tunes too. We’re really looking forward to it!

Tickets are available from Live to Your Living Room. Book now to avoid disappointment – although, it’s an online gig a very large capacity, so it’s not likely to sell out!

We also have these gigs coming up, so it’s a busy old time!
