Suthering meaning "the sound of the wind through the trees or wind under a birds wing" combines the musical talents of Julu Irvine and Heg Brignall. A couple in life and in music, the duo have taken the folk scene by storm with their unusual and fresh approach to folk. Julu and Heg are true story-tellers who champion female characters, creating new narratives for women and unearthing the female heroines of folk.
What sets them apart is their wonderful chemistry and charisma on stage, natural humour and two beautifully matched voices. With an unusual mix of cascading, dramatic piano; intricate, fingerstyle guitar; flute, whistles and harmonium, Julu and Heg bring an exciting take on folk storytelling with their evocative and distinctive sound. Their arresting a cappella arrangements have been memorable favourites with audiences.
Windjammer are Jake Rowlinson, Jeremy Bunting and Fran Rowney, a trio who cast timeless stories in a context of their own making. Their creative approach to traditional and original material blends vocals, guitar, whistles, accordion, synthesizer and percussion in arrangements that are both adventurous and considered. Windjammer’s fast-growing reputation has led to airplay on BBC Radio 3, and appearances at festivals including Latitude and Cambridge Folk Festival.
