Tickets £10* in advance, £12* on the door "Highly accomplished and idiosyncratic" - fRoots Magazine Heg & The Wolf Chorus have carved a name for themselves over the last six years with their unique breed of theatrical-folk. Drawing inspiration from folklore, fairytales, family stories and even modern day myths, their piano-driven songs blend folk, theatre and classical together in dramatic execution. With a core group of four musicians playing piano, flute, fiddle and double bass and led by songwriter Heg Brignall's bright and enchanting vocals, the South-West based band uses tight four part harmonies to creating a cinematic depth to their songs. Having toured the UK extensively, they are a favourite at festivals and venues alike, often silencing rooms with their haunting a cappella tunes. The music is both emotive and exciting, often using complex rhythms and layered vocal parts. The band's outstanding musicianship shines through in their passionate, expressive delivery, exquisite vocals and their ability to deliver on the age old tradition of telling a good story. Having spent 2018 writing their second studio album (part funded by EFDSS) and performing in a large scale spectacle show with Cirque Bijou which was featured on a BBC Four documentary, the band are back on the road in 2019 touring with their new fantastical set of theatrical folk songs.
