Heg & The Wolf Chorus are a band showing the world of folk that they are one of the best narrators around. Approaching songs like aural fairytales, the exciting avant-garde four-piece entices and entertains the listener as storytellers of old.
The enchantingly mythical single ‘The White Witch’ out 26th October, tells the awe-inspiring story of a witch who was wrongfully burnt at the stake and casts her spell that brings the world, as we know it, to its demise. The scale and grandeur of the mythological sites of the Isle of Skye, Scotland that inspired Heg’s song writing can be heard in every breath-taking musical flourish.
The band bring the first single from their debut album Raising The Fires fresh from playing a horde of summer festivals, supporting BBC Sound of 2013 winners HAIM, performing live at Bristol’s Colston Hall for the BBC and being selected for Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging Talent long-list by Helen True from For Folks Sake. BBC Introducing and fRoots magazine are firm supporters of the uniquely theatrical four-piece with the band performing a showcase for fRoots at Sidmouth Folk Festival.
The folk rhapsodist’s showcase their beautiful and distinctly different sound on ‘The White Witch’, set for release 26th October. As epic and dramatic as the landscapes that inspired it, Raising The Fires is set for release in 2016.
Heg & The Wolf Chorus will be special guests to folk heroes Moulettes and Nizlopi this Novemberember on their co-headline tour.
