Saturday, 4th April 2020
Manchester's prodigious folk foursome brings sizable skills, gorgeous three-part harmonies and endlessly inventive arrangements to their fiery and virtuosic brand of folk-fusion.
Interweaving traditional folk (and simply stunning clog dancing) with a wide range of influences from jazz to chamber music to Americana to Latin, they create a rich and distinctive tapestry of sound, from the sublimely wistful to the irresistibly dynamic. Thoroughly delightful. _________________________________________________________________
