NEW STUDIO ALBUM OUT MARCH 2018 ON REVEALRECORDS.CO.UK

A new duo that brings together two of the UK's foremost folk and jazz artists, a sparse and emotive exploration of contemporary folk music formed by multi award winning Scottish fiddler/composer Aidan O’Rourke (Lau / Kan / Blazin Fiddles) and Mercury Music Prize nominated, BBC Jazz Award Winner harmonium and piano player, Kit Downes (ECM Records).

“Few contemporary musicians in any category can match either his artistic ambitions or his achievements in bringing them to fruition” (The Scotsman on Aidan O’Rourke)

“Bravely adventurous - epic and exhilarating” (The Guardian on Aidan O’Rourke’s band Lau)

“Downes makes - difficult music sound natural – even inevitable” (The Guardian on Kit Downes)
