Why limit yourself to a label? That’s the mantra of Twelfth Day - Catriona Price and Esther Swift, two young Scottish virtuosos who offer a musically ground-breaking amalgam of chamber music, Scottish folk music, jazz-funk and electronica.
It is their inherent curiosity, their need to understand through experimentation, that compels them to create their unique, genre-bending music. Catriona and Esther challenge each other to challenge the listener. It can be heard in the way that they push their vocals far beyond the boundaries of what may be anticipated. It can be heard in the way the violin and harp surprise each other to drive the track somewhere new. It can be heard in the lyrics that invite to reassess, reimagine, reinterpret.
Their latest album, Face To Face (2019) was nominated in the ‘Innovation in New Traditional Music’ category in the 2020 Scottish Awards for New Music. Confronting societal conventions by exploring a wealth of urgent current issues, such as gender roles, power balance and the challenges of working in the arts as a young woman, the multi vocal harmonies and layered strings has resulted in a varied and innovative compendium of well-crafted songs that take their influences from a multitude of places and performers and lodge themselves firmly in the ears and brain.

Jimmy’s brand new show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things. Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love. But they’re just jokes - they are not the terrible things.
