The Foxglove Trio is a group of multi-instrumentalists who perform mostly traditional songs from around the British Isles in English and Welsh.
Gathering material from sessions, published song collections and contemporary artists, these talented musicians are making a name for themselves on the UK folk scene for their beautiful harmonies, creative new arrangements and engaging live performances.
Solasta are an outstanding new folk ensemble who are fast building a name for themselves on the back of their inventive arrangements, unique sound and exhilarating live performances. Comprised of award-winning fiddler Elisabeth Flett, cellist Hannah Thomas and guitarist Jamie Leeming, their dynamic interpretations of Celtic based material are rooted firmly in tradition, whilst incorporating elements from diverse musical worlds including classical, jazz and early music. Notable performances include closing the 2016 Cecil Sharp Fiddle Convention, Celtic Connections Festival (supporting Mairearad & Anna), and The Wighton Centre, as well as being interviewed/performing live on Resonance FM, and featuring on the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast in the USA.
