Rain Of Animals SCOT


Concert Times

Rain Of Animals is the euphonious collaboration between Pepita Emmerichs (Oh Pep!) and Theodore Barnard (Wire & Wool) and their love of all things mandolin, fiddle, guitar, harmony vocals, bluegrass, oldtime, swing, tunes and songs. Spanning soulful originals to arrangements of classics and gems of rarities you wish you had discovered earlier, their sound is both new and old, unique in it’s instrumental wizardry and musical integrity all at once. Steeped in a passion for acoustic music, the duo formed after an impromptu jam in a legendary Melbourne Irish bar, and in this vein have continued to perform, write and tour together since 2018.

Recorded during the depths of lockdown in rural central Scotland, their album Nali’s World represents the previous few years’ worth of instrumental fiddle tunes that were composed by Pepi And Theo throughout their travels in Australia, Scotland and Europe. The melodies are inspired by treasured landscapes and people they encountered along the way; a guitar, fiddle, and mandolin never far from reach. Self-produced and recorded (playing all instruments including double bass, cello, mandocello & tenor guitar) in their humble home studio, the tracks were then sent to esteemed Nashville engineer Sean Sullivan (Molly Tuttle, Sturgill Simpson) to be mixed. The result is a collection of lush arrangements of emotive tunes that proudly encapsulate the debut Rain Of Animals offering. Since it’s release they have toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and Australia and collaborated with artists such as Stereo Naked, Harry Bird, Barry Nisbet and Good Guy Hank on various recordings and shows. Most recently ‘Lover Part 1′ was recorded and released in late 23′. It is Rain Of Animals’ first offering in song form and an indication of what is to come in their forthcoming sophomore album!
