Kitewing unites two critically acclaimed UK groups -The Shackleton Trio and Christina Alden & Alex Patterson – in a crescendo of driving tune sets and compelling instrumentals. Soaring harmonies and roaring fiddles combine with guitar, mandolin and banjo to play songs of the sea, migration and environmental struggle. The pulse of the natural world is the core of this band. “Beautiful songs” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2. Kitewing will perform on Friday evening on the Peregrine stage.
