Serpentyne (GB)


(facebook) Serpentyne was created in London in 2010 by founder members Maggie-Beth Sand and Mark Powell, inspired by a combination of early music, folk, Celtic, world and rock.

They recorded their first album, "Stella Splendens" that year, basing it on traditional mediaeval texts and tunes from England, Spain and France, arranged in their own style and blending instruments such as cittole, hurdy-gurdy, harmonium, portative organ, medieval drums, crumhorns, recorders, and Maggie's voice.

Serpentyne has now grown into a 5 piece band and is now finishing its second album, "The Serpent's Kiss" which is due for release during the summer of 2013. Still based upon mediaeval and traditional themes, this album has a stronger rock element.
