CD 'As the Crow Flies' available now (see website for details)


Morrigan comprises Chris Evans, Chris Harrison, Rosaline Hone and Sarah Pavey.  We sing four-part unaccompanied folk songs, mainly traditional but including other material as well.  We are also instrumentalists and play and sing regularly at Chris E's folk sessions at The Two Brewers in Croydon.  With two experienced callers in the group, we also play for ceilidhs and barn dances.

Since 2012 we have been regular performers in London and the South-East.  We take part regularly in events organised by Global Fusion Music & Arts (GFMA), particularly their Wassail Nights and St George's Day concerts, where we have supported artistis including Martin Carthy, Wizz Jones and Gordon Giltrap.  We have been guests at a number of folk clubs, including Tonbridge, Orpington, Twickfolk, Faversham.  Other local events have included the Wassail at East Greenwich Pleasaunce.  We are also regular performers at the Brandenburg Choral Festival Fringe.  

Our first CD 'As the Crow Flies' - a selection of winter seasonal songs - was launched at Charlton House in December 2014.  We are currently preparing a second CD.

From April 2016 we will be hosting a series of GFMA International Music and Dance Events at Mycenae House, SE3.  We will welcome singers, instrumentalists, poets, callers - from any cultural tradition - to take part in these evenings.

Forthcoming engagements include the Brandenburg Festival on April 21, St George's Night on April 23, Loughton Folk Club on April 28, Rochester Sweeps Festival on May 1 and a slot on Doug Welch's Radio Kent Folk Programme, also on May 1st.
