PRESENTED BY KEVIN
Twelfth Day are at the forefront of innovative, modern British folk music. With a fresh, open minded approach to song writing, the duo 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) who comes from the borders, started playing together when they were flatmates during their music studies in Manchester.
With the release of their highly acclaimed debut album Northern Quarter in July 2010, this vibrant young duo have been entrancing audiences at festivals and venues UK wide. Twelfth Day have been touring in the UK since 2008, and in March 2010 made their international debut in Toulouse, France. In 2009, 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.
