Warblers' rant

Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Garden Warbler and Cetti's Warbler with Miranda Rutter, Rob Harbron and Sam Sweeney


Fiddle player and composer Miranda Rutter is joined by Rob Harbron on concertina to present Bird Tunes, an exquisite new suite of folk tunes with birdsong at their core.  Miranda has crafted every tune in the project out of fragments of birdsong which she recorded on her phone during woodland walks near her home.  The suite is both a love-song to the intricacy and beauty of birdsong, and a timely reminder of the struggles with habitat loss and human-made dangers faced by migrating birds today.
