Owl Light Trio are an instrumental group based in Oxfordshire.
They take good tunes to pieces and put them back together again.
Sometimes the insides end up on the outside.
At other times the tunes will seem to go back together seamlessly, until they find a stray note or two in a pocket or under the sofa.
Tunes treated in this way often reveal hidden passageways, trapdoors, overgrown gardens and forgotten attics. When these turn up we like to explore them thoroughly.
On occasion, reconstructed tunes have been known to unfold in dramatic and unpredictable ways, but nobody has ever been harmed as a result.
The tunes come from a variety of sources. Some are traditional tunes from Britain, Ireland or Europe. Many are their own compositions.
Understory is a trifurcation of musical narrative woven by multi-instrumentalists from England and Scotland who grew up absorbing folk tunes through their feet and fingers. Bringing an array of classical upbringings and jazz forays to a mutual love of traditional music, they delight in taking tunes and songs on stochastic journeys with unknown destinations! Settle in and hear the music evolve with the mischievous joy these three find in playing together.
