The Savage Prunes
The Savage Prunes are a young and innovative instrumental trio, performing new music on traditional instruments. Combining the talents of bagpipe virtuoso Callum Armstrong, classical cellist George Pașca, and folk fiddler John-Francis Goodacre, they play complex and compelling music, all of which is newly composed by members of the band. These pieces draw on folk traditions from across Britain and France, as well as more eclectic sources from baroque to pop. Their debut album Straight Line Talking has already begun to make waves both in Britain and on the continent.
