The term ‘Narthen’ is akin to ‘Now then’, ‘what gives’ , ‘what’s happening now?’. Here is what’s happening now. Our aim, no matter the line-up, has always been to sing and play the songs and tunes that reflect our individual personalities and tastes. From the tradition through to modern times, anything goes, and that material is expressed through vocal harmony and a large variety of instruments. All sing, all play and the instruments include, Soprano sax, clarinet, whistles, fiddles, viola, hammer dulcimer, tenor guitar, diatonic accordeon and hurdy gurdy. Expect the unexpected from Jo Freya, Fi Fraser, Sarah Matthews and Doug Eunson.
