Emerging from California Bay area's red-hot roots music scene, the band celebrated wins at both the Telluride and Rockygrass music festivals — and they continue to blow the socks off everyone coast-to-coast.

Twelfth Day

Wednesday 25th Nov, 7:30 pm

TwelfthDay smCANCELLED


Twelfth Day are fiddle player Catriona Price and harpist Esther Swift. They describe themselves as a two-person quartet — using harp, fiddle and both voices to conjure a broad array of sounds, textures, rhythms and polyphony. Exploring and pushing the limits of what a duo can achieve is at the heart of everything they do. Their newest album The Devil Makes Three is adventurous, natural, virtuosic; and proves that they are quite unlike anyone else.

Orator, entertainer, rabble-rouser, negotiator, pamphleteer, the fabled 'big-nosed bard from Barking', Billy Bragg mixes protest songs with declarations of love. This is his first visit to the Universal Hall and we are delighted to have him. Support is provided by singer/songwriter Duke Special.
