During August, we'll be busy appearing at some lovely festivals.
We'll round off our year with a tour in November.
We still have some dates available, so if you'd like to book us, please contact us!
The three of us are accomplished musicians and we each have a great deal of experience in tutoring, both instrumental and vocals.
If you are interested in us running some workshops for you at your festival, folk club or other venue, please give us a call. We'd love to talk to you about it.
Moirai (pronounced 'More-eye')
Jo Freya, Melanie Biggs and and Sarah Matthews are three women who manage to create an orchestra and a choir of sounds and yet there are still only three of them. Throw away your preconceptions about what constitutes folk music and open your minds to a colourful pallet of sounds and song. They will take you on a roller-coaster ride through beautiful traditional tunes, haunting and buoyant compositions and songs that will pluck at your heartstrings as well as have you holding your sides to prevent bursting with laughter.
Many bands can do beautiful music, many bands can do comedy, many focus on instrumentals others on their vocals, here you get it all in one tight but fluid package. Between them you get accordion, flute, fiddle, viola, guitar, traditional whistles, soprano and tenor sax, clarinet and bass clarinet and three voices.
Moirai means 'Spinners of Destiny' and performances weave the trio's instrumental talents with haunting vocals. The result: enchanting musical arrangements delivered with skill and a healthy dollop of humour.
(Please note: Neither knitting nor spinning form part of the performances!)
