Award winning musicians in their own right, Kieran Towers & Charlotte Carrivick have recently come together to form an exciting new old time duo. Their debut album, Wolves a’ Howlin’, was recorded in March straight to tape and is released this September. Listen to the album on Bandcamp.
Reigning UK old time fiddle champion, Kieran Towers (fiddler with the Hot Rock Pilgrims) has been playing this music as long as he can remember. There are few fiddle players who can rival his creativity, and his love of the music and of playing is obvious. Charlotte Carrivick is best known on the British folk scene for her work with her twin sister as The Carrivick Sisters. A past UK champion, it’s her banjo playing that comes to the front in this setting and when the two combine Kieran’s old time fiddle and Charlotte’s bluegrass style mandolin playing, they make a sound that is simultaneously new and refreshing yet rooted in tradition.
