The Dyr Sister

BBC Music Introducing on Radio Humberside presents

A devastatingly beautiful expression of what it means to be alive and kicking and still telling tales in these bleak times, the 49 string band The Dyr Sister transmits the surreal, subversive and provocative paintings of sound in response to the vagaries of modern life. 

Fairy-tales for the Modern Gentleman is an ever-growing compendium of anti-ballads.

Combining contemporary folk with post-hip-hop and electronic music genres delivered with driving percussive beats via a backdrop of strings including viola, harp and bass guitar layered with haunting and ethereal vocal harmonies. 

A series of films, created in partnership with Nova Studios and BBC Introducing Humberside, in which extraordinary local artists perform in iconic Hull locations.

If you'd like to listen to the full BBC Introducing programme, it's on BBC Radio Humberside at 8pm on Saturday 5 September.
