The Kindred Spirit Band sound is special and distinctive, driven by "haunting and bewitching" female vocals, guitar, two classically trained, virtuoso, lead instrument players (on violin and flute / sax), dynamic drums and bass guitar and laced with jigs, reels and duelling improvisations. The band features Elaine Samuels (guitar and vocals), Catherine Dimmock (flute, sax and vocals) , Martin Ash (electric violin), Mike Hislop (bass) and Aleem Saleh (drums).
This progressive folk rock band play powerful “perceptive and intriguing” original material which is inclined to the mystical, magical and environmental.
