Hove House Concerts logo
There we were, sitting in Hove, lovers of music but too lazy to go out. So we thought 'why not use our newly-knocked-through front room to create an intimate space for musicians to perform?'. They can play their songs, sell their CDs and make a few quid - while we can bask in their reflected glory like the fame-whores we are. Mmmm...

So, we promise you:

  • an up-close-and-personal experience (it's big enough, but not that big)
  • some great singer-songwriter-instrumentalists
  • you'll get to see every slide and every hammer-on
  • and every penny of your donation will go to the performer

Coming Soon...

About Twelfth Day

Twelfth Day - Orcadian fiddler Catriona Price and Peebles harpist Esther Swift - are happy to be hard to define. Classically trained, they bring outstanding technical ability as well as an adventurous mix of folk, jazz and classical influences to their compositions and arrangements – blended with the folklore and inspirations of their respective Scottish Highland and Lowland upbringings.

With their latest album Cracks in the Room, Twelfth Day show a new fierceness and strength. As young female artists the two have become increasingly aware of the lingering social stigmas around being an outspoken, self-employed woman. “It’s the elephant – or the crack – in the room; this unspoken thing.”
“Genre-bending style that is both edgy and inventive. A bold, intriguing set."
The Guardian

"Lovely new record...quirky and unusual"
- Stuart Maconie, BBC 6 Music

"There are unlikely to be many better albums produced in Scotland this year."
- Fatea Magazine

"They're absolutely being themselves. The album - Cracks in the Room - is so varied. It takes you by surprise. Every track is something different."
- Verity Sharp, BBC Radio 3 Record Review

“Cracks in the Room is a boldly brilliant record, suffused with dark humour and wildly inventive musicianship."

"Challenging virtuosic music that is far more than the sum of its parts."
- The Skinny
