Their multi-faceted approach results in highly accessible yet sophisticated music that captivates audiences from any genre, while retaining their own unique style.

“The most amazing trio of musicians you will come across. Subtle, entertaining, mesmerising and totally engaging folk. Wonderful stuff.”
