Twelfth Day

Genre-blending style that is both edgy and inventive. . . A bold, intriguing set. ★★★★” –The Guardian

Twelfth Day’s new album Cracks in the Room was produced by legendary English folk musician Chris Wood and mixed in the USA by Oz Fritz (Tom Waits). In it, a new personal exposure, of fierceness and strength, is evident. It’s their most honest, raw and exciting work yet.

In the wordless communication that passes between Orcadian fiddler Catriona Price and Peebles harpist Esther Swift as they perform, the strength of their decade-long musical partnership, friendship and shared humour is evident. It’s this depth of connection, and tangible desire to have fun, that gives Twelfth Day its extra edge.

This is not so much a duo, but a two person quartet. Their two distinctly different voices, the fiddle, and the pedal harp, build layer upon layer of a complex and ever-evolving sound, rich with rhythm, harmony and texture.

Twelfth Day are happy to be hard to define. Classically trained, they bring outstanding technical ability as well as an adventurous mix of folk, jazz and classical influences to their compositions and arrangements – blended with the folklore and inspirations of their respective Scottish Highland and Lowland upbringings.
