TWELFTH Day made up of fiddler Catriona Price and harpist Esther Swift are to perform at Settle Victoria Hall this weekend.

The classically trained duo have been performing together for a decade, giving them a depth of connection, and tangible desire to have fun, that gives Twelfth Day its extra edge.

This is not so much a duo, but a two person quartet. Their two distinctly different voices, the fiddle, and the pedal harp, build layer upon layer of a complex and ever-evolving sound, rich with rhythm, harmony and texture.

Twelfth Day are happy to be hard to define. They bring outstanding technical ability as well as a mix of folk, jazz, pop and classical influences to their compositions and arrangements - blended with the folklore and inspirations of their respective Scottish Highland and Lowland upbringings.

In their album Cracks in the Room (2017), produced by legendary English folk musician Chris Wood and mixed in the USA by Oz Fritz (Tom Waits), a new personal exposure, of fierceness and strength, is evident. It’s their most honest, raw and exciting work yet. A new album, for the first time featuring full band, is due for release in autumn 2019. Twelfth Day are at Settle Victoria Hall on Saturday, November 30 at 7.30pm.
