Suthering @ Between The Trees Festival

August 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

£15 – £110
With its unique theme of nature & science, the festival aims to reconnect people to the natural world. It features a blend of original indie folk music, art and spoken word within a community that embraces all and encourages thinking and creativity.
Devon based folk duo Suthering will be performing at the festival on the 26th of August.
Suthering meaning “the sound of the wind through the trees or wind under a birds wing” combines the musical talents of Julu Irvine and Heg Brignall. A couple in life and in music, the duo have taken the folk scene by storm with their unusual and fresh approach to folk. Julu and Heg are true story-tellers who champion female characters, creating new narratives for women and unearthing the female heroines of folk.
What sets them apart is their wonderful chemistry and charisma on stage, natural humour and two beautifully matched voices. With an unusual mix of cascading, dramatic piano; intricate, fingerstyle guitar; flute, whistles and harmonium, Julu and Heg bring an exciting take on folk storytelling with their evocative and distinctive sound.
“Two excellent singers.” – Genevieve Tudor, Genevieve Tudor’s Sunday Folk, BBC.
“Through rich harmonies, and instrumentation that takes in piano, fingerstyle guitar work, flutes, whistles and harmonium, they conjure up a rare magic that feels dappled with the first rays of morning.” – RM, The Crack Magazine.
“a very different, joyful and unique sound” – Folk Wales Magazine
