Horses Brawl


Horses Brawl began in 2003 as a trio; it now consists of Laura Cannell on recorders, fiddle and crumhorns and Adrian Lever on guitar and bowed guitar. They use the instruments in innovative ways to produce sounds which are reminiscient of mediaeval instruments - for example, the part that sounds so much like a hurdygurdy is in fact a violin played with the bow outside and around it. In one piece the guitar is bowed, too (Adrian's preparation is an amusing piece of stage business Read more on Last.fm

In one piece the guitar is bowed, too (Adrian's preparation is an amusing piece of stage business, entailing rather more rosin and squeaking strings than may be musically necessary)... The result is an astounding range of textures...

superb musicians, with the accurate and warm ensemble that brings out the best in dance tunes. The mood varies from toe-tappingly jolly to sensually languorous and even to the strange and almost disturbing; from traditional to Machaut to their own composed works. This is historical performance brought into our times, giving us some feel for what the music must have been like for the original listeners.
