Released in August 2011, Wriggle and Writhe showcases the duo at their sparkling best in 17 tracks and over an hour of music. Almost entirely recorded live without
overdubs, what you hear is what you get: two brilliant musicians having
Tim (nylon string guitar & button accordion) and Brendan (diatonic & chromatic harmonicas) are both regarded as top world exponents of their chosen instruments, but they
possess an extra skill uncommon in the folk scene: a consummate ability to improvise.It's this capacity to think on their feet that makes their live shows so exciting - they never play
things the same way, anything can happen! It keeps things fresh for them and the audience.
Trying to capture that live magic on disc is not always easy, but Wriggle and Writhe manages it superbly. Scintillating accordion/harmonica duets are interspersed with songs
and guitar-based instrumentals so the sound remains fresh from track to track. This album marks the recording debut for Tim Edey as a singer, and many will be
pleasantly surprised by the warm timbre of his voice. Brendan also contributes two quirky original songs to add to the mix. But unsurprisingly it's the virtuosity
and sheer exuberance of the instrumental tracks that make this album stand out.
