Colour of the Earth

Having played to sell out houses before lockdown, Davies & Daughters return with their distinctive harmonies lent to songs both old and new, spanning a range of vocal traditions including Serbian, Georgian, Sephardic, Gaelic and English.

In their quest to address the climate emergency, they weave the theme of nature into their sets, singing songs celebrating the beauty of our Earth… with a little lamenting too.

Sally is a singer, fiddle player, composer and climate activist. She directed the Folk choir at Cecil Sharp House for 10 years and continues to lead the Wing-It singers in Stoke Newington who are affiliated to Music Declares Emergency. Her book of vocal arrangements of folk songs called ‘Lovers, Legends and Laments’ is available in bookshops, at festivals and on line.

Holly is a singer, pianist, curator and climate activist. Amongst other things she runs The Kids' Concert Company funded by Arts Council England, Thula Mama London and has recently launched a new series Concerts Don't Cost The Earth

Flo is a mental health worker for the NHS, musician and climate activist. As well as Davies & Daughters she writes ethereal, synthy sonics which are still brewing on her laptop... watch this space.

"Davies and Daughters held the audience spellbound with a beautiful set of arrangements delivered with warmth, skill and passion.”
