Winter Wonderband present Yule be Here
Maclaine Colston, Saul Rose, Jennifer Crook and Beth Porter have teamed up to celebrate the music born out of our great British winter with their mastery of the Dulcimer, Melodeon, Harp and Cello. Expect great sing-a-longs, real foot stompers, beautiful ballads and lots of laughs as these great friends pull together all sorts of musical treats from their collective repertoires. It's not all about Christmas, but it is all about the time of year and how it brings us together.
Fresh from starring in the West End play 'War Horse' Saul Rose is "probably the best Melodeon player in the country" Navigator Records. Saul has played for many years with Eliza Carthy and Waterson:Carthy, as has Maclaine Colston "The current most outstanding player (of the Hammered Dulcimer) " Living Tradition. Saul and Maclaine subsequently formed a duo and recorded "Sand and Soil". The album included guest vocals from Jennifer Crook who Maclaine was touring with (in her band "The Hawthorns") at the time. Back in the old days Maclaine and Jenny were BBC Radio 2 Young Tradition Award finalists (as was Saul!), and as the duo Cythara they performed on BBC TV and recorded the music for the David Attenborough series 'The Private Life of Plants'. More recently, Maclaine performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 'Lord of the Rings' at the Royal Albert Hall. Jennifer also played at the Royal Albert Hall during her tour of the UK and Ireland as harpist with Snow Patrol. Jennifer's latest album Merry-Go-Round, produced by Boo Hewerdine, features the much sought-after playing of cellist (and fellow Hawthorn!); Beth Porter. Beth has worked with everyone from Peter Gabriel to Bellowhead and is currently touring with Eliza Carthy.
