Carmina began their career in Bristol in the 1990’s; since then they have toured all over the world and recorded five albums, two of which were produced by Irish music legend Donal Lunny. Their music is an intoxicating blend of Celtic-inspired themes and jazz improvisation, woven together in powerful original songs. The line-up for the Maze features the band’s founder members and songwriters Pippa Marland (vocals, saxes, whistles) and Rob King (acoustic guitar, bodhran) with long-time Carmina member Paul Bradley on vocals, acoustic and electric guitars. The trio will be playing material from their new album ‘Landmarks’ along with other songs from their extensive repertoire.
‘Glorious… gorgeously haunting’ – Time Out
‘Powerful and spiritually uplifting’ – The Guardian
‘Jazz, folk and celtic fusion that mesmerises and bewitches’ – Irish Times
Nottingham songwriter Phil Langran’s songs are engaging, literate and accessible. His versatile band  creates a unique sound firmly rooted in folk, while interweaving elements of American, Celtic, blues and jazz traditions. Phil has created his own genre, where Harlem nights and New York cityscapes rub shoulders with the West Coast of Ireland and scenes from Werner Herzog’s films.  The band’s latest album The Distance was  released in November 2017 on the Folkwit label.
