Spring Bank Arts upcoming ‘TWELFTH DAY’

Saturday 26th March

★★★★ The Guardian  genre-blending style that is both edgy and inventive. . . .
★★★★★ fRoots “a boldly brilliant record, suffused with dark humour and wildly inventive musicianship
Folk Radio UK  one of the most rewarding listening experiences to be placed before an audience this year.”
Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3 “instantly addictive”

Twelfth Day wear their rich and varied experience with pride – their folk roots, their classical training – this duo are more than a simple product, an exponent, of their practice. It is their inherent curiosity, their need to understand through experimentation that compels them to create their unique, genre-bending music. Catriona and Esther challenge each other to challenge the listener. It can be heard in the way that they push their vocals far beyond the boundaries of what may be anticipated. It can be heard in the way the violin and harp surprise each other to drive the track somewhere new. It can be heard in the lyrics that invite to reassess, reimagine, reinterpret.

Their latest album Face To Face (2019) was nominated in the ‘Innovation in New Traditional Music’ category in the 2020 Scottish Awards for New Music. Multi vocal harmonies, layered strings and recording sessions at Scotland’s famous Castlesound Studios and the Reid Concert Hall in Edinburgh has resulted in a varied and innovative compendium of songs which will inevitably draw comparisons to Hannah Peel, Stealing Sheep, Haiku Salut, Lisa Knapp, Bjork… well-crafted songs that take their influences from a multitude of places and performers and lodge themselves firmly in the ears and brain.
