FolkWales. VRï have risen to prominence in Wales and beyond over the last two years, gaining high acclaim for their exciting sound, stylish arrangements and innovative art-music interpretations of folk melodies and songs. Although their roots are in Wales and the backbone of their repertoire is Welsh, VRï make a point of blending other traditional musics from around Europe, and have been heavily influenced the ‘chamber-folk’ artists from both sides of the Atlantic. VRï's vision has always been to maintain the integrity and individuality of their fiddle styles within the ideals of classical chamber ensemble, to deliver a product which harnesses both the raw energy of the fiddle and the finesse of the violin.

A nomad both geographically and musically, Ross Wilson (Blue Rose Code) writes from the heart – eschewing any specific genre – and the twelve new songs on The Water Of Leith, addressing themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future, are painted with colours of soul, jazz, folk and pop – an eclecticism that has become a hallmark of Blue Rose Code and has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits.

The material is as joyful and fun as it is intense, but the common factor is the duo’s warmth and confidence in each other; their natural ease and connection is clearly evident on the recorded music, and a genuine pleasure to witness on stage. “Spellbinding… Hannah and Ben were born to play and sing together” FRoots.

The Irish folk and blues singer-songwriter makes her first visit to Exeter.

Over twenty-five years and ten albums, Mary Coughlan has made the most grown-up, uncompromising, wholly personal and utterly universal music on either side of the Atlantic about what goes on between men and women. She has taken the classic standards of jazz balladry and the recent gems of rock and Irish song-writing, shaken them and offered them up anew, like jewels dripping from the deep, strewn on black velvet. She sings in the voice of the wrong and wronged woman and she makes us think what it is men make of women and what women have to do to make do.

Salt House is Jenny Sturgeon, Ewan MacPherson and Lauren MacColl. Their album Undersong has been praised by folk bible fRoots for bringing ‘startling freshness’ to the British song tradition.

Songs are central to Salt House. New songs that sound as if they’ve always been here. Ancient ballads woken up. Poems given the tunes they’ve long deserved. Songs about place, politics, landscape and birds.

Singer, guitarist and harmonium player Jenny has a PHD in seabirds. Described by R2 Magazine as ‘a singer-songwriter who brings together the old and new with a rare skill’. Her songs are earthy and wise; she sings them with beauty and power.

Singer and guitarist Ewan brings to Salt House a wealth of understanding and experience gained with the highly respected Fribo and Shooglenifty. His songs are poetic and layered; his voice plaintive and from the heart.

Fiddler, viola player and vocalist Lauren’s arrangements hold a rich, deep, darkness flecked with gold. You can hear the Highlands in Lauren’s elegant bowing, honed while performing with the quartet RANTThe Rachel Newton Band and as a prolific and award-winning soloist. She plays with warmth, wisdom and soul.

You’ll also hear echoes of Pentangle, a touch of Dick Gaughan, murmurs of Scandinavian and Scots, all woven into a music that’s traditional and new. The group’s meticulous attention to detail, shared passions and care for their craft sees Salt House soar.

Two fine performers and interpreters of English folk music, Hazel and Emily’s live performances brim with the depth and connection of musicians who have been immersed in folk music all their lives.

Together they reinterpret songs and balladry, creating breathtaking arrangements, allowing words that are hundreds of years old to resonate profoundly with contemporary audiences.

Both women are also skilled multi-instrumentalists and expert players of dance music, using fiddles, melodeons, concertina and cello to bring old dance music to life.

Since winning the 2015 Spiral Earth Award for Best Traditional Album, the sisters have been busy with a number of other innovative projects. Emily has been touring with her vibrant fiddle band Alma, as well as releasing her first solo album, exploring the crossover between folk and early music which was critically acclaimed by the national press. Hazel has been busy working with her groundbreaking trio Lady Maisery, as well as folk supergroups Coven and Songs of Separation, the latter winning Best Album at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Stirred by these new musical experiences, the sisters now return to their duo with a fresh vision. They spent 2018 deep in rehearsal, reconstructing and re-exploring their sound, unearthing old songs, as well as composing and creating new music. The culmination of this will be their long awaited fourth studio album, to be released in 2019.
