EDGELARKS – CANOPY THEATRE BECCLES Friday 5th November 2021 at 7.30 p.m.
Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin have proved themselves one of the most captivating and innovative acoustic duos in the UK - winning the 'Best Duo' accolade at the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and being nominated for the same title again in both 2016 and 2018.
Edgelarks are a class act built on Henry's much extolled musicianship, Martin's highly original songwriting and her deep, soulful voice. The Devon duo have been making 'world music from the West Country' since 2010 through 5 acclaimed studio albums plus the 2014 live album Live in Calstock.
On Feather Henry again conjures incredible sounds on dobro, lap steel and beatbox harmonica, while Martin excels on banjo and fiddle and that wholly distinctive vocal. Not only is it an album pumped full of peace and joie de vivre, it also sees Henry stepping up his vocal presence. Pushing more musical boundaries, the fluttering Feather (which was released in May 2019) dips and dives managing at the same time to be graceful and majestic, fragile and strong.
Tours have taken them to Australia, Japan, South Africa and Canada and of course they have travelled extensively across the UK. Their spring 2020 tour brought them to the wonderful Canopy Theatre in Hungate Church Beccles with an extremely successful performance for what proved to be the venue's last show before the first lockdown.
Now they are paying a much anticipated return visit to this ideal setting to perform songs from Feather and much more besides, including a chance to hear the material they have been busy working on during the various lockdowns.
