About

Featuring Barry Coope of Coope Boyes and Simpson, Jo Freya of Blowzabella/Moirai , Jim Causley 4 time BBC folk award nominee and Fi Fraser of The Old Fashioned/ Polka Works – this is a quartet of suburb vocal harmonies and multi-instrumentalism. The material of the group features “songs that will touch your heart, engage your intellect and wow your ears. Expect pith, pathos and polyphony”. Narthen is a new name for a new venture. Familiar yet shiny and new which means you get that great mix of comforting familiarity and constant surprises. I didn’t know they did that…well they do! Their debut Cd ‘Narthen’ was released in September 2018 “Their debut album shows off peerless harmony singing – an excellent album of singing and playing” RnR **** “It’s a brilliant demonstration of the ensemble’s multi-faceted musical personality, whereupon they move effortlessly and appropriately between modes, juxtaposing pathos and heartbreak with seriously uplifting humour and historically informed commentary - This is a lively, eclectic CD from a vibrant quartet; a memorable and life-affirming set.” FolkRadio UK https://narthen.eu/
