4th October 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Part of our Scottish concert tour this autumn. We will be playing a special concert at Woodwick House, near Evie on Orkney, together with wonderful Orcadian musicians Kate Fletcher and Corwen Broch. Featuring music and songs from our new album NINE PRAYERS NORTH as well as work from other recent albums, in a rich weave of lament, lullaby, love song and celebratory wildness. Plus magical-pagan songs by Kate and Corwen – and some shared offerings that we will cook up together!
With this new music we have shaped music, lyrics and soundscapes that reflect rebellion, grief, hope, joy, comfort, stillness, restlessness, mystery and love. We have written these songs with the heart pointing northwards. Nine prayers offered in a time of turbulence.
We will be playing a broad range of beautiful traditional and hand-crafted instruments including wooden flutes, eagle bone flute, metal whistles, death whistle, fujara, koncovka, Jura guitar, bowed dulcimer, djembe, frame drums, metal bowl drum, rattles and bones. Vocals include songs in the proto-celtic Bronze Age language and some mythic tales harvested from Carolyn’s published work. We hope you can join us for this evening of music on the island.
