Rare London appearance.

Based in Fleetwood, Lancashire, duo Rapunzel & Sedayne, aka Rachel McCarron and Sean Breadin, met through music, and found themselves singing together before they'd actually spoken to each other. They have since contributed to a number of critically acclaimed CDs, including Angel High Wires (with Julie Tippetts), and as Venereum Arvum have contributed tracks to Infernal Proteus and John Barleycorn Reborn.

Rapunzel (5-string banjo, lap-top harmonium, frame-drum and drones} has been singing all her life, with passions encompassing folk, country and classical. Sedayne (kemence, violin, crwth, flute & kaossilator) is a seasoned singer of traditional song and balladry, a storyteller par excellence who specialises in an variety of ancient and traditional instruments and is an exponent of the lost art of modal improvisation.

The debut Rapunzel & Sedayne CD Songs From The Barley Temple was widely acclaimed as one of the records of 2011, highly placed in the fRoots Critics' Poll and Spiral Awards. An album of mainly traditional songs and ballads along with a handful of Rapunzel & Sedayne originals, it features stripped down, raw instrumentation and almost telepathic vocal interplay. Many of the songs featured are sourced from the Max Hunter Collection – an incredible archive of field recordings made by an American travelling salesman in the 1950s and 60s. Although deeply steeped in the traditional music of the English speaking world and the revival sounds of Peter Bellamy, Shirley Collins and Mr Fox, the careful listener may identify a variety of influences from Dr Strangely Strange to Joy Division to early music to Judee Sill.

"One of the best, most intriguing, simultaneously fascinating and entertaining debuts out of the UK folk scene in a long time" (fRoots)

Not quite, John - but we were thinking about handing out some bird flutes & fowler-calls for a spot of impromtu warbling a la ISB... But maybe we'll hold that over for WIERDLORE.

Last time we handed Kazoos out, one broke, 6 disappeared and two were purchased by old ladies who liked them so much they wanted to take them home.

For storytelling purposes I'm never without bags of party-favour ocarinas and bird-warblers; for hygiene reasons I never ask for them back, plus it's a nice souvenir. As one kid said once, "Wow, I've never had a musical instrument before."

Old ladies with kazoos though, now that could catch on...
