Union Chapel is the perfect venue for Wolf and Steer to conjure up some festive, cockle-warming tunes.

Within the last 10 years Wolf has collaborated with musicians such as Buffy St Marie, Angelo Badalamenti, Patti Smith, Marianne Faithfull, Eliza Carthy, Thomas Bloch, Florence Welch and Coco Rosie as well as art world luminaries, Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans, Tilda Swinton and Ryan Mcginley.

As a classically trained violist, harpist and composer and self-trained pianist, singer and producer, Wolf to date has written and produced all his own work. At the age of 28, Wolf accepted an "Outstanding Contribution To the Arts" award from Dublin’s Trinity University and has been asked to speak as a special guest at Cambridge University on songwriting.

Patrick was invited by Yoko Ono to perform at London’s Meltdown festival where he sung songs from John and Yoko's Double Fantasy album and was reunited with Patti Smith and Tony Shanahan where he went on to finish the last dates of the Banga tour on celtic harp and viola.

Now back home in the UK and setting up a new studio, Patrick will play a few choice shows around winter solstice. It will be a chance to hear some of what was written during his journey plus new arrangements of songs from the winter realms of his songwriting and select covers of his favourite winter songs by other artists.

On this tour Patrick will be playing piano, the tenor guitar, harp, viola, kantale, theremin and re-introducing electronics to his live set.

Serafina Steer's skills on the harp are fast gaining her a loyal following- both musicians should thrive in a space like Union Chapel!
