Songs for Wintertide
A festive collaboration with two of the finest bands on the English folk Scene.
The Tin Sail Collective (Suthering and Windjammer) come together for a very special Christmas collaboration for the second year in a row. After a hugely successful sell-out performance at The Barbican Theatre (Plymouth) in 2021, they return with an atmospheric, winter-themed evening of folk songs.
Combining rich five-part vocal harmonies with harmoniums, whistles, flutes, piano, guitars and accordion, this exciting and dramatic collaboration is a show is not to be missed. Expect unique interpretations of traditional tunes and Christmas favourites, as well as original music from both bands.
Join this exciting collective of folk musicians for a memorable evening to drive out the cold and celebrate the winter season!
Suthering, the musical alias of Julu Irvine & Heg Brignall, have taken the folk scene by storm with their unusual and fresh approach to folk music. Their harmony-rich songs tell tales of struggle and triumph against all odds; of heroes from both their own lives and from stories they have found. Inspired by strong female characters in history, mythology, and personal experience, and with an unusual mix of cascading, dramatic piano; intricate, fingerstyle guitar; flute, whistles and harmonium, Suthering bring an exciting take on folk storytelling with their evocative and distinctive sound.
