Music: Twelfth Day

Be swept away by the talent and musicianship of Twelfth Day when Orcadian fiddler Catriona Price and Peebles harpist Esther Swift make their Rosehill debut, performing in Messel's Bar as part of our Club Messel series.

The friends, who have enjoyed a decade-long musical partnership so far, possess two distinctly different voices. Together with the fiddle and the pedal harp, they build layer on layer of sound, rich with rhythm, harmony and texture. The result is not so much a duo but a two-person quartet!

They are happy to be hard to define. Classically trained, Catriona and Esther display technical ability as well as an adventurous mix of folk, jazz, pop and classical influences blended with the folklore and inspirations of their upbringings.

Twelfth Day's latest album, Cracks in the Room, produced by legendary English folk musician Chris Wood and mixed in the USA by Oz Fritz (Tom Waits), is their most honest, raw and exciting work yet.

BrewDog and folk!

We are delighted to host Twelfth Day as part of a special themed BrewDog and Folk weekend, promoting Scottish folk music and Scotland's successful craft brewer! We'll have a number of BrewDog beers available and goodies to give away!

A limited number of combined tickets for both Twelfth Day on Saturday evening and Talisk on Friday evening are available for a special price of £20. Book quickly to avoid missing out!
