SEVENTH WAVE MUSIC PRESENTS
Concerts for the Winter Journey
with Dartmoor Composers and Musicians
CAROLYN HILLYER & NIGEL SHAW
A SONG OF FROST AND FIRE
Music to catch the warmth of autumn’s gold, the taste of winter’s edge
and the deep resonance of our hearth fires during the cold months.
A magical infusion of hand-crafted forest flutes and wild drums,
soul-filled melodies, songs of sacred land and ancestral spirit,
vibrant rhythms and some mythic tales laced with ivy spells.
Carolyn and Nigel will be performing from recent albums
(Nine Prayers North, Flow, Bones and Winter Folded Everything Inside a Shawl of Feathers)
and newly created work, including songs in the ancient proto-Celtic Bronze Age language
and some lively tunes to tweak your dancing toes.
You are warmly welcome to join them for this celebration of the season
and honouring of our shared journey towards midwinter.
Carolyn and Nigel are internationally renowned for their compositions, recordings and performances, created together over thirty years and infused by the wild songs of the high moors where they live.
They have travelled the world with their music, from Arctic Siberia to the Pacific Coast
and all around these islands; playing in forests and cathedrals, temples and tents;
spinning songs and melodies from ancient instruments and sacred sounds.
