The Otter's Holt - Whalebone - New Video!

Here's our latest video - we hope you like it! 'The Otter’s Holt' is a traditional Irish Reel played on Irish Bouzouki and Acoustic Guitar and features in our Totally Plucked shows and will be on our next album. Available digitally via streaming and downloads on the major digital platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music and YouTube

Filmed with a drone camera near the River Severn in Shropshire by Andy Mark (YouTube Channel: Bigdonk 2429) and some extra footage of the Bridgnorth otter filmed by Chris Watson. We're really pleased how the video has turned out with the footage capturing the beautiful landscape around where we record our music :)

Whilst filming our new video for The Otter’s Holt, we discovered that walking and playing instruments at the same time is tricky on uneven ground 😋

New release - The Otter's Holt

We're releasing a new tune on September 18th - The Otter's Holt. 'Holt' is another word for an otter’s den, coming from old words for "wood," "woods," and "wooded hill" (Icelandic "holt" and German "holz" both mean wood).

We perform it on an Irish Bouzouki and Acoustic Guitar with the swirling arpeggios and beautiful melody line evoking the sinuous fluid movements of an otter in the water.

I'll be available on Spotify and Apple Music 😊
