Ahead of a brand new album, acclaimed drummer Corrie Dick(Dinosaur, Jacob Collier, and Rob Luft) is joined by one of the most exciting new voices on the UK music scene, saxophonist Norman Willmore (The Peatbog Faeries, Beth Orton). Together they draw direct inspiration from the world of Scottish folk music with a unique setup that includes drums, saxophone and organ foot pedals. They weave ancestral melodies with drones, field recordings and improvisation, giving the tunes renewed meaning, whilst also challenging traditional notions of folk music. Captivating, spontaneous improvised music, from an uplifting and inspiring duo, new vistas formed from ancient traditions.

Here’s some of their music…

“It is a rare and wonderful thing to encounter genuinely original music, the salt-bite of the North Isles is thrust head-first into a brave new experimental world. Here we have two musicians transcending both jazz and folk; utterly in control, and creating a singular voice like no other” – Martin Green

“Their sound is enticing and thoughtfully matches the content, offering a new form from separate musical styles.” – Huw Warren

Once a Fig create spinning, trance-like melodies that morph into electrifying groove-based tunes, beautiful original music from Rebecka Edlund (vocals), Phoebe Harty (cello) and Cori Smith (viola), a trio that met two years ago playing folk music and dancing polskas into the early hours of the morning. Myriad musical soundscapes, intertwining traditional folk melodies, original compositions and improvisation. Rebecka Edlund’s debut album, ’Något om en björk’ was nominated by Lira Music Magazine for the best folk jazz album of the year. You may have caught her previously in Corrie Dick’s wonderful Sun Swells band, and she has performed at renowned venues around Europe with musicians including Rob Luft, Elliot Galvin, Laura Jurd. Phoebe Harty and Cori Smith are Radio 2 Young Folk Award finalists as members of ‘Don’t Feed the Peacocks’, with inspirations including pop, classical and Swedish folk music.
