Julu Irvine & Heg Brignall Tour Dates
After less than a year playing music together, Julu Irvine & Heg Brignall have taken the folk scene by storm with their unusual and fresh approach to folk music. Based in South West England, their songs, which are a mixture of traditional and original, follow themes of love and loss; dreams and reflections and struggle and triumph against all odds. Taking inspiration from stories with strong female characters, history, mythology and personal experience, Julu and Heg create evocative songs with a deeply moving and pure sound using the musical line up of vocal harmonies, guitar, flute and piano.
Alongside their captivating original folk music, the duo create unique arrangements of traditional songs, often changing the endings to songs where the female characters are less fortunate, allowing the poor heart-broken maids to rise into triumphant heroes. The pair perform their songs with humour and charisma, showcasing their accomplished musicianship and fine artistry.
Both Julu and Heg have received praise and recognition individually as musicians; the two now come together for the first time, using powerful songwriting, weaving stories and crisp vocal harmonies to create a beautiful, distinctive sound.
