When Two Rivers Meet is an album by Rhillig, featuring original and traditional tunes and songs inspired by Dartmoor and beyond

Featuring Phil and Mahrey Berthoud on fiddles, vocals, guitars, bodhran and mandolin

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 terrifying hanging and the drowning of an entire village!
