As intricate as a team of watchmakers, as spare as a mountain stream, uplifting and elegiac in equal measure, their music encompasses both a cinematic sweep and an intimate delicacy, in which “the aroma of muddy leaves and old nettles is almost tangible” (The Observer).

The musicians:

Paul Bradley(Scottish Dance Theatre) – acoustic guitar, miniature harp

Pete Judge (Get the Blessing) – trumpet, cornet, rotary-valve tenor horn, dulcitone, harmonium, chimes, glockenspiels, lyre-harp

Alex Vann (Spiro) – mandolin, bouzouki, bowed psaltery, tenor banjo, zither, hammered dulcimer

Expect a stage strewn with upwards of 15 instruments (some familiar, such as trumpet, mandolin, & acoustic guitar; some beguilingly unusual, including the eerie bowed psaltery & a late-Victorian Scottish acoustic keyboard called the Dulcitone), allowing for some striking multiple instrumental combinations and an overall soundworld unlike any other.
