Suthering @ Gloucester Folk Trail: The Fountain Inn

February 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Gloucester Folk Trail first arrived in the city in 2018.
Folk musicians, artists and poets from around the county congregate in venues around the city, paying homage to traditional forms of Folk music, performance, entertainment, and arts & crafts.
“Excellent musicians, beautiful harmonies and a fresh approach to traditional music” – Tony Birch, FATEA Magazine
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. Their arresting a cappella arrangements have been memorable favourites with audiences.
They will be performing songs from their debut album If We Turn Away (release date: 25th February 2022).
