Just over a year after supporting Kitty McFarlane at The Pound, Julu Irvine & Heg Brignall are back having taken the folk scene by storm with their unusual and fresh approach to folk music. Their songs, which are a mixture of traditional and original, are reflections of the world around them.
Their harmony-rich songs tell tales of struggle and triumph against all odds; of heroes from both their own lives and from stories they have found. Taking much inspiration from strong female characters in history, mythology and personal experience, Julu and Heg create evocative songs with a deeply moving and pure sound using the musical line up of vocal harmonies, guitar, flute and piano.
