The Lorelians are at it again, busy little bees that we are! This time, Amy went down to DDC on October 19th for a very rare performance by three acoustic wonders: Daniel Taylor, Heike Kagler and Hanna Jarvi. Hanna moved back to Finland a year ago, but while visiting Beijing this year, she made sure to make time for her music partners and fans. View video of Dan and Heike performing here or catch them live at DDC on November 10th for a special show with Su Zixu.

Introducing Baroque folk duet Daniel Taylor & Heike Kagler:
Dan Taylor, folk singer/songwriter has been playing about the Beijing music scene for the past two years. Dan is currently fronting the psych folk group “The Harridans” and bashing away on the drums for the dirty punk duo “Luv Plastik”. His solo gigs take a slightly more restrained attitude, focusing on the classical guitar and folk leanings of old England.
Classical cellist, singer/songwriter Heike has long walked the Beijing music beat, from high-art to the indie-strata to the underground. As much at ease in the royal Albert hall or in a hutong bar, Heike’s versatility has led her to perform with a multitude of artists, from folk-rock to bluegrass, country, and blues.
"Daniel Taylor & Heike Kagler" present songs that draw on Celtic tradition and are infused with that poignancy and sadness so often found within the folk music of the British isles. This is a duo you don't want to miss!
