About

Kieran Towers & Charlotte Carrivick

Expanding on the tradition of fiddle/banjo duets, award winning multi instrumentalists Kieran and Charlotte combine their thorough knowledge of Appalachian folk music to create a new take on old time and contemporary string band styles.

Inspired by forefathers of the tradition and modern day masters, their music is infused with groove and distilled with intricacies as they weave ever-evolving ideas together on stage for audiences to see. Expect breakneck fiddle tunes, lyrical banjo playing and occasional glimpses of Charlotte's Bluegrass prowess when she picks up a mandolin or guitar. Add in some old songs with sweet vocal harmonies and you have the complete package.

Amongst new interpretations of age-old melodies, the two also showcase their compositional skills on their debut album, Wolves a' Howlin', which was recorded straight to tape by master engineer Josh Clark at Get Real Audio and is set for release on the 2nd of September 2016.
