Celtic folk band Carmina bring us a long awaited Christmas special!
Since beginning their career in Bristol, Carmina have toured all over the world and recorded 6 albums, two of which were produced by the highly-respected Irish musician Donal Lunny. Their music is an intoxicating blend of Celtic-inspired themes and jazz improvisation, woven together in powerful original songs.
Singer and songwriter Pippa Marland has ‘a wondrous voice, enchanting and emoting’ (Time Out) and is also an accomplished saxophonist, adding alto/soprano saxes and whistles to the mix of instruments. She and masterful arranger/songwriter Rob King (acoustic guitar, mandola, bodhrán) are the founders of Carmina, and compose the songs around which the band weave their magic, crossing musical boundaries effortlessly and blending styles organically into a subtle but powerful original sound.
