Spokeswoman Lorraine McGregor said: “The duo are at the forefront of innovative, modern British folk music. With a fresh, open-minded approach to song and tune writing, the pair create an entirely unique sound, interweaving masterful fiddle and harp playing with beautifully-harmonised vocals in stylish and dynamic arrangements.

“From opposite ends of Scotland, Orcadian Catriona Price (fiddle/vocals) and Esther Swift (harp/vocals) released their highly-acclaimed debut album Northern Quarter in July 2010. Twelfth Day have toured widely in the UK and Ireland and in 2009, and their track Fare Thee Well was selected by Channel 4 to be used in a short film by the makers of the hit show Skins.”

“A seven-piece all-acoustic band with banjo, mandolin, fiddle and harmony vocals the STFU perform with soul and beauty on their murder ballads and laments and tear it up with their Hootenanny sawdust-kickers and high-energy sound.”
