The Dyr Sister

Hailing from the City of Hull in England, Sally Currie is The Dyr Sister (pronounced deer, it’s Old Norse) and that most wonderful of things, a true and pioneering individual. As a multi-instrumentalist she conjures up surreal tales with the aid of a viola, a mandolin, her voice and an array of live samples.

Sally performs her catalogue of haunting, ethereal modern day folk songs as a one-woman band, portraying a fascinating canvas of sound and beats as she goes. Her original and innovative pieces are influenced by a wide range of genres from jungle and dubstep through trip hop and hip hop and ending somewhere deep amongst the many varieties of traditional folk music from around the world.

She released her debut album “Fairy Tales for the Modern Gentleman – Volume One” in June 2015 and in July 2016 a five track EP. “The Demonstration Extended Play”. These unique and unconventional tunes are at the heart of her concerts.

“In the often homogenous world of underground music scenes, thank goodness for The Dyr Sister. The perfect blend of avant-garde, melodicism and out-thereness”.

Mr Douglas Anderson – broadcaster, writer and filmmaker.

 “Quirky, and quite fantastic. The Dyr Sister crafts perfectly formed folk-infused alternative pop.” 

Dom Smith – Soundsphere Magazine.

“The Dyr Sister is a rare artistic gem of contemporary folk talent!”

Jon Vyner – Tidal Concerts / The Camden Underworld.
