Eira/Snow is a collaboration between Caractacus Downes and Lyndon Owen. Having worked closely together in a variety of musical forms over the years their close understanding, improvising spirit and shared joy of playing coupled with a harsh winter demanded action. 

They play atmospheric music drawing on Scandinavian, Celtic and Middle Eastern influences – whilst having a clear new voice in contemporary music. 

Improvisation plays a key role in the band’s ethos – often producing mesmeric pieces, occasionally underpinned with indian tanpura or founded on multilayered figures.

Eira/Snow embodies a wide range of instruments giving an amazing range of timbres. Instruments include Double Bass, soprano, alto, tenor and baritone Saxophones, Armenian Douduk, Turkish Mey and Zurnah, Hungarian Tarogato, Clarinet, and a range of percussion.
