Don & Angela are The Twa Bards:
An engaging, entertaining musical conversation that brings history and its characters to life. Specialising in the music of Robert Burns, and complemented by original and traditional songs in the Scottish genre... bringing flavour to the brew… like whiskey & haggis, chilli & chocolate! Unique arrangements, rich vocal harmonies, song stories, duelling flutes and more… a showcase of inimitable sco’s-aussie style.
Don was taught Scottish history through songs and stories. A love of the work of Robert Burns was a big part of the aural tradition that was shared. He’s been performing those songs and adding to that collection ever since, winning solo singing competitions, and travelling with various bands.
Angela has classical roots that pretty quickly loosened up into folk and funk styles along the way. She cannot resist the charms of each instruments colour, and brings rich vocal harmonies.
The Twa Bards have developed thematic performances inspired by: ‘A Tribute to Robert Burns’.

The Twa Bards have sunburned tartan hearts that time travel!
“May your pulse beat as your heart would wish!”
We love putting on concerts, and playing at festivals, art gallery events, house concerts, medieval & heritage fairs... and look forward to new opportunities as we emerge from our changed world into something new.
Over the last few years they have also developed and performed numerous
sound bath meditations, as part of Angela’s sound therapy study.
