Nine Shields exist outside time, a shifting group of shadows around a central nucleus that has been active for more than 30 years.
Drawing from the rich bygone heritage of these isles.
Taking from ancient, medieval and present musics, some voices raised in thanks, some instruments played for welcome, some played to warn...
Borrowing roots from the earth and metal from the forge.
Memory, folklore, myth and legend...
The olde roads, long ago travelled now lie unused, forgotten over vast expanses of time.
Stories handed down from age to age, distorted and altered.
We have so much yet to learn.
Nine Shields are story tellers, minstrels, mood makers, mummers and alchemists.
They weave a tangled web out of the sinews of the dead and distant past, to present to the living soul complexities and conundrums beyond reckoning.
And the jigsaw with a million missing pieces has one more added to light the black night of history.......
Sunstone are proud to announce the release of their first ep later in the year. Listen to the A-side here
