Alice Phelps leads her band on harp and powerfully husky vocals, augmented by double bass, percussion, cello, violin and backing vocals. Influenced by folk from near and far, Celtic to Eastern, she experiments with delay, blues motifs, and intricate melodies and rhythms to create a melting pot of contemporary and traditional styles, treversing the territories between psychedelic folk and cosmic jazz. This is a truly unique band, not to be missed.
