REVIEWS AND QUOTES
HORSES BRAWL - WILD LAMENT
"Impossible to pigeonhole the Horses Brawl duo, Laura Cannell and Adrian Lever. Armed with recorders, fiddle, guitar, and guest artist Philip Thorby, they build improvised fantasias from scraps of medieval chansons, folk music and other ancient history. Ancient, but not dead; your foot taps and heart sings as these virtuoso magpie musicians duck and weave, making Northumbrian hornpipes and Guillaume de Machaut share common ground. A breath of fresh air"
"It's great stuff.....an early music group to keep an eye on"
VERITY SHARP - LATE JUNCTION, BBC RADIO 3

"A fascinating progression from formal dance music to semi-improvisation that had the packed audience roaring for more"
