A Delicate Operation...

We're back! Although the climate here in England is necessitating some slightly extreme instrument maintenance. Here Dylan is correcting the fit of the hurdy gurdy keys to prevent them from sticking. Hopefully the fiddly work will be worth it and Minerva's Tower will be able to take to the packed Christmas-time streets of York for some festive busking once the university semester has finished.

Long Overdue Update

First of all, thank you to everyone who came to see us at the Perth Medieval Fayre, and extra thanks to all of you who bought Diluculum! We made Diluculum for a variety of reasons, chief among them being that we wanted to share our love of music with people who hadn’t seen us live. I dare say this was achieved, not by us, but by the lovely people who bought a copy for themselves and then came back for more to send to far-flung relatives and friends – that is how the fire spreads. Thank you! We have another 20 or so copies available if you can think of anyone who might like to hear us.

Studio Photos

Something different is on the way. Minerva's Tower spent a couple of days at the WAAPA studios in Perth with Joel Bickford in late November, and the resulting recordings are starting to come together!
We may soon have to change the answer to the question we get asked only slightly less often than "what is that instrument?"
