NIGEL SHAW & CAROLYN HILLYER

We welcome you to this website, to the hearth fire of our ancestor roundhouse and to this place of wild sanctuary on Dartmoor. We live and work in the heart of the southwest moors, amid the high hills, upland streams and misted valleys. We create music albums and concerts, books and paintings, traditional flutes and drums, women’s workshops and instrument making weekends, small festivals and gentle gatherings on our ancient farm. Within these pages you are able to listen to audio samples from our music, wander around our recent releases and new publications, find out about the events programme or explore the archive of videos and slide shows from past projects (under About Us). Our music label Seventh Wave Music pages are marked with a spiral, our publishing house Braided River Books pages are marked with a wing. We hope you will enjoy your visit and these offerings from Dartmoor.
