Drawing inspiration from Celtic folk traditions, New Orleans street-beats and a sprinkling of alt-rock, Laura Jurd leads a group of world-class instrumentalists to bring this vibrant music to life. Expect big friendly tunes and grooves-a-plenty.

“A big hearted, gorgeously lyrical, feel-good romp, which does not preclude cerebral engagement but which wears its complexities so lightly that one barely notices them.” – Chris May, All About Jazz
