Music for The Devil
Announcing our new music project:
The idea for Morvoren arose from the invocations and chants found in Gemma Gary’s book The Devil’s Dozen – Thirteen Craft Rites of The Old One. The book contains many invocations that naturally lent themselves to being put to music. The band is made up of Anna Dowling on Violin, guitar and Vocals, Gemma Gary on Bodhran and percussion and Jane Cox on Guitar, Bouzouki and synth.

The band is also very inspired by the Guising tradition of West Cornwall, and we also perform guising tunes in full guise costume.
