Northern Oak Triptych EP Launch - November 2015

Last night Sheffield's very own pioneers of the heavy flute sound, Northern Oak launched their new EP Triptych with support from The Infernal Sea and Black Moon Rising.

The EP includes 3 tracks written and recorded as perks for backers of the Of Roots and Flesh album Kickstarter. 'The Court of Owls' was written for Adam Page & Kate Tomlinson, whose brief was "a song about owls"; 'Ellan Vannin' was written for Jim Waterman, whose brief was "a song about the history and mythology of the Isle of Man"; and 'A Portrait' was written for Sarah Aggarwal who asked for a song which would represent a time of great personal hardship for her.

The band played the EP through in full for apparently the only time and then treated us to a selection of epic tunes from their back catalogue.

Here are a selection of the photos Craig took at the gig.

You can see a full set of the photographs from the night, including Black Moon Rising and The Infernal Sea on our photo page or by checking out Iron Golem Photography online.

The EP is available to purchase online from Bandcamp for Name Your Price:
