THE TAIL OF
TWIN HEADED WOLF
Praised as Glastonbury's "most special festival find" by the Spectator magazine, Twin Headed Wolf are certainly making a name for themselves in this world and the other world. Their eccentric, theatrical, ritual-imbued, folklore informed stage shows have earned them a cult following in Ireland and abroad. They tread a narrow track between the beautiful, the dark and the ridiculous and their use of teapots, saws, bicycles, milk jugs, bones, dollies and decapitated French hunting horns as instruments alongside their ethereal twin-edged blood harmonies is the distinct and unique creature that is Twin Headed Wolf. They have just released an album of folk songs recorded in a tomb in Oslo renowned as one the most spectacular resonant chambers in Europe and their album of original material is set to be released in the coming months.
The twins are active members of Dublin's incredible folk music scene and have shared stages with Ye Vagabonds, Lynched, Skipper's Alley, Landless, Rónán Ó Snodaigh, Lucius, This is the Kit, Hudson Taylor, The Young Folk, Katie Kim, Luka Bloom and Mundy. They have appeared on national televsion, newspapers and radio.

Branwen trained as a sculptor and her wonderful inventions often make appearances at Twin Headed Wolf's performances. She enjoys building instruments and collecting bones and strange noises.
Julie is fire performer in her spare time and enjoys playing with saws. She studied the ancient world and the history of thought and enjoys exploring ancient rituals and soundscapes.
