Fly Yeti Fly
Fly Yeti Fly are the Wiltshire-based acoustic duo Lorna Somerville and Darren Fisher. Blending sensitive vocal harmonies with intricate guitar arrangements, mandolin and harmonica, the duo weave songs and stories from their travels together, with a sound that is reminiscent of the late-’60s folk scene.
Now living on their canal boat on the Kennet & Avon canal, their music is heavily influenced by life on the water and the natural world. Each song is unique ~ shifting from upbeat folksy songs dedicated to boat life, a sense of community and their mischievous dog, to delicate ballads devoted to dreamers, mother nature and heart-broken mermaids!
Keen artists on the festival circuit, this pair are often accompanied by cellist Jo Hooper (Mudskippers) and double bassist Alex Pearson (The Model Folk). Fly Yeti Fly’s first ever performance was in fact on the Fire Stage at PVFF way back in 2013. For them, returning to the festival is like returning to their roots and the home of where that little spark of Yeti magic was first ignited.
Fly Yeti Fly released their debut album “Shine A Light In The Dark” in 2017, also featuring the beautiful artwork of The Wooden Spoon Press – resident PVFF artist and merch designer! The duo are now putting the finishing touches on their much-anticipated second album, due for release in Summer 2021.
“…fly yeti fly are a seriously incredible duo…just stunning…” – James Santer, BBC Introducing Devon
“Fly Yeti Fly were simply outstanding. There is a whiff of Haight Ashbury in an English Country Garden about this outfit. Great songs, soft, haunting, fragile vocals, and a warmth and purity of spirit that radiates from the stage.” – Festivals For All, 2019
