Twelfth Day are not so much a duo, but a two-person quartet. Their two distinctly different voices, the fiddle, and the pedal harp, build layer upon layer of a complex and ever-evolving sound, rich with rhythm, harmony and texture.
Classically trained, they bring outstanding technical ability as well as an adventurous mix of folk, jazz and classical influences to their compositions and arrangements - blended with the folklore and inspirations of their respective Scottish Highland and Lowland upbringings.
