We are incredibly proud to have commissioned our latest Folk collaboration, and so pleased to be bringing an exclusive summer festival performance of The Lost Words - Spell Songs to Folk by the Oak.
A musical companion piece to The Lost Words - A Spell Book by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, with Karine Polwart, Julie Fowlis, Seckou Keita, Kris Drever, Kerry Andrew, Rachel Newton, Beth Porter, Jim Molyneux.
Singing nature back to life through the power of music, poetry, art and magic.
We gathered these remarkable musicians together for a residency in Herefordshire in early 2019, where they created new works which were immediately recorded to create an album for general release in late summer.
The album CD is presented a beautiful mixed media format featuring exclusive new Spells by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris with accompanying new artwork.
Following a sell-out February tour with standing ovations at every venue, Spell Songs enjoyed a headline performance in May at the inspirational Hay International Literary Festival in Wales.
April 2020 tour is now on sale! Go to thelostwords.org/live for full details
