Melbourne-based indie folk duo Charm of Finches present an enchanting display of musical alchemy. Renowned for haunting harmonies and bewitching songs about love and grief, rivers and trees, the sisters – Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes – have garnered international acclaim and are lauded as “Australia’s premier exponents of baroque folk-noir”. Their beautiful voices are accompanied by evocative strings on current album, Wonderful Oblivion: a collection of gorgeous, deeply personal songs that also address environmental issues.
Scottish duo Twelfth Day bring their edgy, inventive, genre-bending musicianship to Celtic Connections. Both members of this classically-trained, folk-infused two-woman “quartet”, sing gloriously. Catriona Price, from Orkney, is a fiddler and Borders-born Esther Swift plays the pedal harp. The result is an endlessly surprising repertoire of intelligent songs that comment on today’s world – and a magical sound that lingers long after the performance has stopped.
