In the decade between their acclaimed debutCruel Sister and their eighth record Mount the Air (which won Best Album at this year's BBC Folk Awards), they have toured Africa with Damon Albarn, been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and embarked on a series of highly praised collaborations with everyone from The Voice Squad to Orbital and Sting.
