Track 1 from Twelfth Day’s 2014 album The Devil Makes Three.
Twelfth Day are fiddle player Catriona Price and harpist Esther Swift. They both sing – often in unison, creating a new voice that is neither one nor the other. They both write – together, weaving traditional folk with classical elements to create a music that’s outside of genre. Lyrically they combine their own experiences, inspirations and dreams, informed by musical travels around the globe and their upbringings in Orkney and the Scottish Borders. They are inseparable.
Their newest album The Devil Makes Three brings together everything these women have heard and learned, over many years of playing and studying, to form a musical statement about who they are. The record surprised and thrilled broadsheet music critics and the folk press alike.
“21st century art music for trad fans.” – fRoots
The Devil Makes Three was released in 2014. Its 10 entirely self-composed songs and tunes (save for a snippet of a traditional lullaby) embody everything that Twelfth Day is: undaunted, adventurous, natural, virtuosic, and quite unlike anyone else.
“A strangely moving and unique fusion of the imaginations of two young women.” – Scotland on Sunday
