"...tight, well crafted, virtuosic and beautiful... Largely the music spoke for itself and was both fascinating and emotionally rewarding" (Fabulous Furry Folk, Glastonbury)

The live show combines the theatrical bardism of Ash Mandrake with the (other-) worldliness of the Senegalees Griot and the classical virtuosity of Cath The Piccolist (Hurley). Anchor this with bass from the profoundly experienced folk rock guru Daniel (Eberhart) Eid and you have an original blend of sounds and energy.

Superb musicianship intense live energy and hats, hats, hats. With their innovative blend of african, celtic and classical influences; see them live, and you’ll be in for a fascinating night of entertainment, punctuated by the theatrical mirth that has made this act a favourite.
