Please note the change of venue: Siger will now be performing at Murdoch House, Redruth.

Known for their innovative instrumental compositions rooted in Flemish traditional music, siblings Ward & Hartwin Dhoore have been roaming international stages together for over 15 years. They have been the oiled engine behind award-winning bands & projects such as Trio Dhoore, Estbel and The Flemish Folk Caravan, just to name a few.

Throughout the years the brothers managed to create their own musical identity that has attracted many listeners far across the Flemish borders. With concerts in almost every country in Europe, the UK, and North America and performances at festivals such as ‘Celtic Connections’ (Scotland), Underneath the Stars (England), Folk Alliance International (USA), Rudolstadt (Germany) and many more, the brothers established a wide fanbase on which they have built a strong career.

Today they are performing mainly as a duo called ‘Siger’. ‘Siger den Rode’ was the first landlord of ‘Rodeland’, a Flemish area (Belgium) with a rich cultural history that the two brothers call “home”. He ruled in peace with the local population until the Spanish conqueror came and overthrew him.

But Siger’s music is also appreciated in Flanders, the duo’s home base. Their instrumental music can be heard regularly on the national radio. The brothers regularly perform at one of the biggest folk festivals in Belgium; the Dranouter Festival, and presented their modern folk music in many Flemish art centers. Although the brothers have been playing together for over 15 years, their excitement to introduce new music and enthral new audiences is never-ending. Diatonic accordion and octave mandolin complement each other seamlessly in a musical adventure where you sit on the edge of your seat.

We’re delighted to announce that Cornish composer and multi-instrumentalist Martha Woods will support Siger.

Martha Woods is a composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Lostwithiel who grew up immersed in Cornish folk music and dance. Having studied Folk and Traditional Music at Newcastle University and the University of Limerick, she is now presenting her debut Christmas EP, ‘Mis Kevardhu’, an electro-folk take on Christmas and midwinter with a strong Cornish influence
