An evening of fantastic music and a delicious 2 course meal from the Lost ARC caf´é… What’s not to love!

Eira/Snow is a collaboration between Caractacus Downes and Lyndon Owen. Having worked closely together in a variety of musical forms over the years their close understanding, improvising spirit and shared joy of playing coupled with a harsh winter demanded action. Eira/Snow was born out of bad weather, warm fires and a long relationship and the resulting trust and understanding between two very individual multi-instrumentalists.

The group plays atmospheric music drawing on Scandinavian, Celtic and Middle Eastern influences, whilst having a clear new voice in contemporary music. The sound is contemplative; both gentle and strong with the ability to both relax, challenge and please. Improvision plays a key role in the band’s ethos often producing mesmeric pieces, occasionally underpinned with indian tanpura or founded on multilayered figures.

Eira/Snow embodies a wide range of instruments giving an amazing range of timbres. Instruments include Double Bass, soprano, alto, tenor and baritone Saxophones, Armenian Douduk, Turkish Mey and Zurnah, Hungarian Tarogato, Clarinet, and a range of percussion.

A 2-course meal is included in the cost of a ticket, with meal options to be announced nearer to the date but rest-assured that as always at The Lost ARC all diets can be catered for (please give advanced notice of any unusual allergies or dietary requests).

Online ticket sales for this event are closed.
