Fringe review from Three WeeksCheyenne Brown And Seylan Baxter ***
Cheyenne Brown and Seylan Baxter's concert offered a refreshingly genuine taste of Scottish tradition to counterbalance all those tartan tourist shops. A harpist and cello, they played traditional tunes - Celtic jigs, Scottish drinking songs, the work of the obligatory Robert Burns - but with their own lively and innovative arrangements. The combination of harp and cello proved a rich, beautiful one, especially when topped off with Baxter's soft singing voice. Brown on harp shifted between playing lightly and nimbly to coaxing a deep, rich sound from its strings. While Baxter claimed they avoid "songs about fairies, because of the harp, and the long hair thing", their magical piece 'Gossamer Wings' was entrancing and these two musicians successfully cast a spell on their audience.
Rosslyn Chapel gig (24th Aug) sold out.
Cheyenne on Radio ScotlandCheyenne was on the Fred MacAulay show this morning talking about teaching kids and the Harp Festival.

Living Tradition ReviewThere's a great reveiw of 2:forty in the Jan/Feb 2008 edition of the LT:
"The girls' wonderful treatment of all this music leaves each track with a feeling of 'the new' about it."
"I found myself becoming lost in the innovative soundscapes created by this incredibly talented duo. It's pretty easy to get lost in this music."
"I really look forward to there being more to come."
