Twelfth Day

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Twelfth Day are happy to be hard to define. With their two distinctly different voices, the fiddle and the pedal harp, they build layer upon layer of a complex and ever-evolving sound, rich with rhythm, harmony and texture.

Their songs confront societal conventions by exploring a wealth of urgent current issues, such as gender roles, power balance and the challenges of working in the arts as a young woman; the threat of climate change and society’s reluctance to act; and the struggles of mental health.

In their new album Face to Face (out November 2019, and their first featuring their full band) their multi-layered influences come together to create something entirely individual. There’s the radio-friendly catchiness and self-proclaimed respect for Beyoncé; there’s the swagger and surprise of jazz and funk; there’s the precision and technique of classical. The only label to truly hit the high note is ‘contemporary’: Face To Face could only be made now, and only by Twelfth Day.

a boldly brilliant record, suffused with dark humour and wildly inventive musicianship” ★★★★★ fRoots

"genre-blending style that is both edgy and inventive. . . A bold, intriguing set." ★★★★ The Guardian
