TEYR & The Twisted Twenty – Gales & Tall Tales Tour 2018
TEYR and The Twisted Twenty join forces for a spellbinding double bill full of tales, melodies and musical journeys. Their tour takes them across the south of the UK, stopping off at in Abergavenny, Somerset, West Cornwall and London next week. The concerts are a rare opportunity for collaboration between bands exploring two radically different perspectives on British folk music.
Folk trio TEYR evolved out of London’s thriving session scene, combining bothy ballads, focsle shanties, folk tunes and Irish poetry. Their unique blend of voices and instruments draws links between the many sounds of the Celtic and British isles. Through a mutual love of reworking folk music TEYR came to play with baroque-folk ensemble The Twisted Twenty. The latter are known for their interpretation of early folk music from the 18th century and before. Using original period instruments they blur the lines between what we consider folk and classical, creating new sounds and meaning for British music.
This summer they are thrilled to collaborate to bring you the Gales and Tall Tales Tour 2018. Come explore new and old ley lines through traditional musics.
