More about Fellow Pynins:
Their live performances are whimsically emotional escapades through the chasms of feelings. Dashed with spontaneous and clever banter, mirth and woe, you will probably cry and quite possibly laugh, a lot. Wielding claw-hammer banjo, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, and acoustic guitar the duo sings predominantly original music as well as reworked traditional ballads gathered from their travels.
This is the band that you never knew you needed in your life. So soak in the stories and as Lisa Dunn from the BBC says, let the music “transport you into their haunting and beguiling world of love tales and spine-tingling harmonies… They will have you traveling far and wide to hear them again.”
More about the Heartwood Chorus:
This Bristolian community choir will take you on a journey through time, remeniscing about the songs our grandmothers taught us, songs of rebellion, of love, of loss, of the turning of the seasons. Heartwood Chorus aims to explore and challenge the boundaries of the folk genre whilst creating a welcoming, supportive and thriving environment for its members.
