Withershins – Withershins
Withershins is a young band from the Netherlands who take a bold and contemporary approach to Irish and Scottish traditional music. Their eponymous EP features crazy not-quite-Irish tunes in dastardly arrangements with strange twists and turns, a story about an evil and ugly but strangely flirtatious witch, a song about waking up in a barn in a tender embrace with a pig after a night of heavy drinking and more.
