UK based Laura Cannell and Ireland based Kate Ellis have forged a collaborative partnership over the past year which has culminated in the release of a highly acclaimed album, These Feral Lands.

The Open Session will feature Cannell’s signature evocative overbowed violin alongside Ellis’s deeply expressive cello playing, together with specially commissioned music videos by UK and Irish artists. It is the culmination of a year of recording, and during their Snape residency the two performers will have been navigating a live space together for the first time, creating ways to perform the music which they wrote and recorded remotely throughout 2021.

Having only ever met once and worked together for more than a year across the ether between their music studios in Suffolk and Dublin, this exciting and informal Open Session follows is the first opportunity they have had to work and perform together in person, enjoying the energy of making music in the same space.
