“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.

Suthering meaning “the sound of the wind through the trees or wind under a bird’s 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 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.

What drew them together as songwriters was their shared love of collecting stories and turning them into songs; both have written about their grandparents and stories their family members have shared. Julu and Heg combine their powerful song-writing, weaving stories and crisp vocal harmonies to create a beautiful, pure sound.

 

“beautiful harmonies” – Genevieve Tudor, Genevieve Tudor’s Sunday Folk, BBC.
