Folk music duo to play arts centre
8:36am Wednesday 1st August 2012 in Somerset
MODERN British folk music duo Twelfth Day play at Bridgwater Arts Centre on Friday, September 7, at 8pm.
With a fresh, open-minded approach to song and tune writing, the pair create an entirely unique sound, interweaving masterful fiddle and harp playing with harmonised vocals in stylish and dynamic arrangements. From opposite ends of Scotland, Orcadian Catriona Price (fiddle/vocals) and Esther Swift (harp/vocals), who comes from the Scottish Borders, released their highly acclaimed debut album, Northern Quarter, in July, 2010.
Twelfth Day have toured widely in the UK and Ireland, and in 2009 their track, ‘Fare Thee Well’, was selected by Channel 4 for a short film by the makers of the hit show Skins. Following the release of Fiere, their collaborative album with Joy Dunlop in May, 2012, Twelfth Day’s new EP, Speak From the Start, is due out in September.
Tickets for the performance cost £12 (£10 concessions) on 01278-422700 and at www. bridgwaterartscentre.co.uk
