Gris Sanderson plays the nyckelharpa. After years exploring traditional music from her native Scotland she formed the band Waulk Elektrik with her brother, touring extensively in the 1990s and playing at festivals such as Cropredy, Towersey, Sidmouth and WOMAD. She then formed the trio Spyka with Mike Cosgrave (Jackie Leven band, Sin É) and James Dumbelton. Since acquiring this nyckelharpa at the St. Chartier Festival for instrument makers in Central France she has been composing new material for live performance that highlights the instrument’s extraordinary qualities.
James Dumbelton collaborates on this project with the addition of mandolin and bodhrán. He was also a key member of Waulk Elektrik and Spyka, and is also currently working with traditional singers Jackie Oates & the Jim Causley Band.
