Suthering @ Colchester Folk Club
Mon, October 23 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Suthering will be heading to Essex to perform at Colchester Folk Club (at Colchester Arts Centre) this autumn!
Evocative and distinctive, folk duo Suthering (Julu Irvine & Heg Brignall) transport audiences with their exquisite vocal harmonies and their message of hope during hard times. Soaring above the cascading piano and delicate, fingerstyle guitar, it’s the duo’s beautifully matched voices and their fresh approach to folk which make their traditional and self-penned songs stand out.
Known for their chemistry and humour on stage, they effortlessly intertwine their important messages about the state of our climate, social conscience, and the importance of community and connecting with nature. They champion female characters, creating new narratives for women and unearthing the female heroines of folk.
Described as playing “Hard-hitting, beautiful songs” (Folk Wales Magazine) and heralded for their distinguished sound by RnR Magazine, “Suthering’s strength lies in their uniqueness. They really don’t sound like anyone else on the current folk scene”. Suthering have toured extensively with their debut album If We Turn Away (co-produced with Lukas Drinkwater) and are currently working on a new EP.
