TEYR and THE TWISTED TWENTY join forces for a spellbinding double bill full of tales, melodies and musical journeys. Multi-instrumental folk trio Teyr and baroque-folk ensemble The Twisted Twenty offer two radically different perspectives on British folk music, exploring new and old ley lines through traditional musics. Here the two acclaimed bands collaborate to bring you the Gales and Tall Tales Tour 2018.
A young and vibrant septet from all over the world, The Twisted Twenty play period baroque instruments in their own joyous twists on traditional British folk songs. Melodious and exuberant – we dare you not to dance!
‘At times almost semi-orchestral, at others as intimate and spontaneous as a folk session.’ Andy McMillan, Bright Young Folk Review
‘Enthusiastic and properly exhilarating’ David Kidman, The Living Tradition
Teyr are a folk trio whose charismatic tapestry of voice with fiddle, uilleann pipes, guitar, low whistle and accordion has been hailed as ‘high-energy brilliance’ and ‘one of the greatest bands that has come out of the English scene in recent times.’
‘A perfect blend of trad and modern jigs, reels and airs. The apparent boundless energy, imagination and instrumental expertise is all their own… Teyr are doing things their own way’ Neil McFadyen, Folk Radio UK
‘Dominic Henderson, on pipes and whistles, has instantly become one of my favourite musicians, clearing the head quicker than a deep breath in a peppermint factory.’ Oz Hardwick, RnR magazine
