When Two Rivers Meet – album by Rhillig

When Two Rivers Meet is the new album from South Devon-based folk duo, Rhillig.  Featuring original and traditional tunes and songs inspired by Dartmoor and beyond, the music is played and sung by Phil and Mahrey Berthoud on fiddles, vocals, guitars, mandolin and bodhran.

The album features a variety of material, from a ballad based on the moving story of the Buckland clock, to a foot-tapping trip up Haytor; from the haunting beauty of Sweet Rosalie to the disconcerting Hairy Hands of Postbridge!  There’s also the lovely A Ship Came Sailing, collected by Baring-Gould in Hexworthy and a flowing evocation of the East and West River Darts meeting at Dartmeet.  Other tracks include the rowdy Rough Music Tonight (a traditional form of punishment!), a hanging and the drowning of a village!

Rhillig cast their net near and far for their inspiration.  Visit their website at www.rhillig.com where you can also buy their CD.

10% of profits from the sale of each CD will go to Donate for Dartmoor, to help conserve this wonderful landscape.
