Moirai are three women – Jo Freya, Sarah Matthews and Mel Biggs – who manage to create an orchestra and a choir of sounds. Throw away your preconceptions about what constitutes folk music, and open your minds to a colourful palette of sounds and song. They will take you on a roller-coaster ride through beautiful traditional tunes, haunting and buoyant compositions, and songs that will pluck at your heartstrings as well as have you holding your sides to prevent bursting with laughter.
Accordion, flute, fiddle, viola, guitar, traditional whistles, soprano and tenor sax, clarinet and bass clarinet, and three voices.
Moirai means ‘Spinners of Destiny’ and performances weave the trio’s instrumental talents with haunting vocals. The result: enchanting musical arrangements delivered with skill and a healthy dollop of humour.http://www.moiraitrio.co.uk/
There is something about this wonderful trio - songs with a beautiful self-deprecating sense of humour which puts me in mind of Fascinating Aida and simply gorgeous playing of such a wonderful range of instruments. It's like being in a rainbow made of jasmine blossoms while drinking a deceptively strong margerita … Many many thanks ladies.
