Post & Packaging

“Syncopace draws on the energy of traditional music and expands it with a constantly changing kaleidoscope of sounds – one moment a lyrical cello counterpoint, next a driving riff as cello and guitar combine in complex cross rhythms underpinning the interweaving melodies of the fiddle, flute, concertina and Northumbrian pipes.”   The Evening Chronicle

“English concertina wizard Alistair Anderson has forged his own brand of crossover music in his new band Syncopace, bringing the craggy tunes of the North East in from the cold to be recycled into a rich counterpoint. ... Anderson has produced a thoroughbred.”   The Guardian
