Owl in the Sun

Thursday, Sunday

Owl in the Sun play a home-grown blend of self-penned americana and gypsy-jazz influenced songs. From the heart-warming to the dark and edgy, the gentle toe-tapping to the downright dance your socks off. Expect infectious melodies and luscious vocal harmonies over a line up of upright bass, acoustic guitars, accordion, fiddle and flute.

Members Colin Cain (guitar, vocals), Cathy Crozier-Cole (double bass, flute, vocals), Kate Bridge (fiddle, vocals), Tim Crozier-Cole (guitar, vocals) and Damon Bridge (accordion, percussion) have been making music together since 2009. Together they have performed at festivals all over their native West Country, been featured in Glastonbury Emerging Talent Showcase and the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury Festival (2011), were finalists in the UK Isambard Nu-Folk Award, have recorded two albums and an EP, were featured in ‘Top 30 bands pushing the roots music envelope in Europe’ by the American magazine Alternative Root (2013), and have received airplay on BBC Radio 1 and 2.

“Like a hot French jazz band of the thirties, backing up Jacqui McShee and John Renbourn…theirs is an effulgence to match the sun” – Americana UK
