ELGIN’S DROUTHY COBBLER will again host top-line musicians on a UK-wide tour when Twelfth Day arrive for their show on March 13.

Twelfth Day recently released their latest studio album ‘Cracks in the Room’ – now they will arrive in Moray as part of a 16-date UK-wide tour in March.

Uniquely, Catriona Price, (Orcadian fiddler) and Esther Swift, (Peebles harpist), are described as making up a ‘two person quartet’. The new album was produced by Chris Wood, and mixed by Oz Fritz, and has delighted fans and critics alike.

With five and four-star reviews from The Guardian and fRoots amongst others – and an appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour which moved Jenni Murray to tears, music fans across the UK will have a chance to hear this critically acclaimed, innovative music live this spring, with shows spanning the UK – with Elgin the third date on the tour.

One recent review said: “In the wordless communication that passes between Catriona Price and 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.”
