Join Iain Copeland aka the Phat Controller on Celtic Music Radio Tue 10 till midnight when he will be in conversation with Caro Bridges and Calum Cummins about their new single being released on Fri 18 Dec 2020
Caro runs a Choir in Edinburgh called the Castle Chorus and Calum is in Yoko Pwno and works as an engineer in a couple of studios in Edinburgh and have come together to record this new single.
The Kelpie is a mythical horse demon associated with Scotland’s rivers and lochs. They are renowned for inviting travellers to climb on their backs, before dragging them off into the water and their doom.
The new single from Caro Bridges and Yoko Pwno brings this legend into our modern world. In Caro’s song, the shapeshifting Kelpie teaches us the value of change, even as it pulls us under.
This modern update of tradition is reflected in the music. Caro’s gentle lilt is backed up by beautiful harmonies from the Edinburgh folk and roots community choir she directs, Castle Chorus.
Folktronica act Yoko Pwno add intricate fiddles and guitar, plus Pink Floyd-esque synth and percussion.
The single also features a standout drum performance from Skye-based Iain Copeland (Adam Sutherland, Sketch).
Listen in tonight for the first broadcast of the song!
