Nat Brookes leads a new ensemble of expert musicians in this concert exploration of instrumental music for dance

Inspired by the driving grooves of British Folk Musics and the twisting flow of European Bal, ‘Cormorant’ is a beguiling mix of Jigs, Three-Two Hornpipes, Mazurkas and more. Each tune is thoughtfully arranged for Accordion, Fiddle, Flute and Guitar in compositions that are both mesmerizing and uplifting.

Nat is joined by: Deb Chalmers on Fiddles (Stepling, Folk Dance Remixed) Sam Partridge on Flute (Pons Aelius, The Rachel Hamer Band and director of the National Youth Folk Ensemble) Tom Evans on guitar (Understory, Climax Ceilidh Band)

Nat grew up in Suffolk, left to study music in York and now lives on a Narrowboat on the Grand Union Canal. Their charismatic phrasing and compelling harmonies create a rich tapestry of interweaving melodies and harmonic countermelodies. Their style is distinctive but versatile. Nat performs in concerts alongside their partner Beth in a duo and in various other bands, including ‘Portfire’. They are passionate about playing and writing music for dance. Nat plays in ceilidh band ‘Take The Biscuit’ and in concert and ceilidh duo ‘Gifford|Brookes’
