The Beatrix Players @ The Glebe


“It was unanimously known amongst onlookers that the climactic pinnacle of the night had arrived when the all-female trio gracefully inhabited the stage to play a final gig in Stoke-on-Trent after appearing on various radio stations in the area; before returning South. Admittedly, beforehand I held some uncertainties surrounding the Cello, but my queries soon diminished when the empowered orchestral sound of Beatrix Players was in full flow. And when performing songs such as Unpolished Pearl we see that no percussion is no problem, the lack of any drums only strengthened the impact of their unique blend of classical elements that layer flawlessly to complement the elegant vocals. With a sound that I can only describe as enchantingly dark, I urge you not to miss them again whenever they return to Stoke!”

Moorlands Radio Review

“Gentle on the ear but strong enough to make a great impression on the mind. A waft of elegant anglicana, which hints at jazz and levels of unplugged sophistication. So good they should be declared compulsory listening for all those seeking music beyond the norm. Swoonsome harmonies to swim with, drown in…Not one gruff note or rough vocal line, recalls the likes of Pentangle and maybe even a whisper of Sandy Denny in the way they relate to homegrown musical stylings.”

“Their music is beautiful!”

“…a gothic pop song accompanied by a stunning animated video in which the band members are caught up in a surreal world of bell jars and octopus arms.” Click on the clippings to see full review

 The Style Chapel are watching our debut video, Unpolished Pearl! Check it out!

“What’s playing in the chapel? The Beatrix Players (not to be confused with the Beatrix Potter). An Indie Folk band who’ve been compared to the likes of Tori Amos, Kate Bush and PJ Harvey. The Unpolished Pearl video is awesome. Have a lookie/listen.”
