HANDS OF THE HERON
Hands of the Heron is an alt-folk project from Bristol, UK. Their instantly recognisable vocal harmonies are delivered by four frontwomen, each of whom brings a signature writing style to the band's mercurial sound. They move effortlessly between sparse choral folk and spellbinding chamber pop, richly layered with violin, saxophone, clarinet, flute, accordion, guitars and banjo. Their second album 13 Moons was released in February 2021 on their own DIY label Cuculi Records, and has been gathering widespread praise from fans and critics alike. 13 Moons is "a wondrous collection of curious story-songs, choral singing and carefully layered instrumentation" (Joyzine) with "songwriting mastery that perfectly delivers reverberating folk-pop" (Tap The Feed).

TAMSIN ELLIOTT

Multi-instrumentalist and composer Tamsin Elliott (Solana) performs material from her forthcoming debut 'FREY' on accordion, harp, whistle and voice, accompanied by her long-time collaborator and brother Rowan Elliott on strings.

In her music Tamsin explores themes of limbo, pain, healing and acceptance, reflecting on the microcosm of her personal experience of chronic illness alongside wider themes of societal disconnection and environmental grief.

Tamsin is one of the composers currently creating work supported by Sound and Music's New Voices artist development programme.

"There is a rich thread of collaboration throughout [Tamsin's work], one which both celebrates and highlights the coming together of cultures and music... The results are always refreshingly inventive and exciting"
- Folk Radio UK

"Tamsin's accordion recreates the thrill of the casbah whilst [her] flute and whistle take us on spellbinding, almost mystical, journeys which soar with unexpected twists and turns" - Outline Magazine
