Yearning ballads of love, loss and revenge nestle next to tales of suicide and untimely death. In Blueflint’s songs is an unflinching retelling of the human condition, lightened by exquisite harmony singing and the deft beauty shaped by their instrumental work. With High Bright Morning, Blueflint delivers a haunting, singular statement.

Touted by the Scotland on Sunday Review as one of the top ten acts to watch, Blueflint are based around the banjo duo of Deborah Arnott and Clare-Louise Neilson, whose music subtly intertwines the clawhammer and three-finger picking styles of banjo along with beautifully stark but sweet vocal harmonies in original songs and ballads of love, loss and revenge.  Blueflint’s unique sound is enhanced by the contribution from an excellent line-up of talented and versatile musicians including Roddy Neilson on fiddle, and Hugh Kelly on double bass.

Blueflint have toured extensively throughout the UK and Ireland, bringing their atmospheric and thought-provoking performances to venues and festivals including: Edinburgh's Hogmanay Street Party, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Cornish Bluegrass Festival and Dunmore East International Festival, Ireland, Dunstaffnage, Traquair Fair, What's Cookin' and The Green Note, London; The Greenman Festival, Devon; the Loch Lomond Festival; The Grand Ole Opry and The Goat, Glasgow; Leith Folk Club, Edinburgh; The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen; Hootenanny, Inverness; The Showroom, Sheffield.

Following on from the launch of their new CD 'High Bright Morning,' (produced by Jim Sutherland - Aberfeldy, ‘New Town’ BBC), in September 2009, Blueflint embarked on a Scottish tour taking them to venues such as the Tolbooth, Stirling; the Eastgate Theatre, Peebles; Aros Arts Centre, Skye; the Birnam Institute and many more.

The band are currently working on their new CD due for release later this year.
