In the wordless communication that passes between Peebles harpist Esther Swift and Orcadian fiddler Catriona Price as they perform, the strength of their ten year 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.
“challenging, virtuosic music that is far more than the sum of its parts” ★★★★ The Skinny
