Classic Celtic folk but taken to another level achieved, largely, by dragging traditional instruments into the nineties. To that add beautiful lyrics and melodies and enhanced by the individuality of the bands members".
Lordryk was formed by three brothers - Andy, Paul and Tim Ashton, formerly with the Cornish band Moondragon. So it should come as no surprise that Lordryk is the Cornish word for ... [More]Moondragon.
Lordryk hit the road and became an instant success, touring in the UK and mainland Europe where they built up huge fan bases. Lordryk was asked back to the Loriant Celtic Festival four years in a row - unusual, even for a top act, to be asked back more than twice. Lordryk continued to headline at festivals and major venues + the occasional support. Notably Lordryk supported The Levellers during a tour of Holland.
Athene was welcomed into the band in the mid nineties playing fiddle and occasional backing vocals that further enhanced the sound.
In between tours they returned to their home, the late lamented Vroe Community on the Lizard in Cornwall where the in-house studio was used to record yet another album.
Sadly it all came to an end in 1999 but its members are still in the bizz. Andy is a guitarist in a band whilst busy writing and recording a solo album. Paul helps run a community in Holland that is both a nightclub and recording studio. Tim & Athene are two thirds of The Three Daft Monkeys and Rich formed the increasingly successful : Hitchcock Rules.!
