Dan Taylor, folk singer and front man of the psych folk group “The Harridans” has been playing about the Beijing music scene for the past couple of years. His solo gigs take a slightly more restrained attitude, focusing on the classical guitar and folk leanings of old England. 


Cellist Heike Wyler has long walked the Beijing music beat, from high-art to the indie-strata. 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 playing various musical styles around town. 

As a duo, Dan & Heike have coined their own style "Celtic Baroque Folk", presenting 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 !
