The Fates
Quite simply astonishing a capella singing. Bay Whitaker, Sue Cain, Tegwen Roberts and Peter Rophone sing striking, moody originals to gospel and the earthier side of roots and traditional song. Sue provided backing vocals for us on a couple of tracks on At the stringsmith's forge

Martyn Bennet
Gone but not forgotten.

Sublime singing from Finland.
