TWELFTH Day will play their genre-bending music at Victoria Hall in Settle on November 30.

Sophie Parkes, writing about the duo, said they wore their folk roots and classical training with pride, but worked hard to avoid being labelled.

She said: “Though Catriona Price’s violin and Esther Swift’s pedal harp remain the front and centre of their sound, and the mastery of their instruments is evident, Twelfth Day draws from a more expansive palette than the number of instruments might suggest, leaving a lasting impact on the listener.

“Catriona and Esther challenge each other to challenge us. It can be heard in the way that they push their vocals far beyond what may be anticipated from two young women with high voices.

“It can be heard in the way the violin and harp surprise each other to drive the track somewhere new. It can be heard in the lyrics that invite us to reassess, reimagine, reinterpret. It is their inherent curiosity, their need to understand through experimentation, that compels them to reach for new ways and means.”
