HARBOTTLE & JONAS
Devon based folk duo Harbottle & Jonas are one of the most exciting acts on the UK circuit today, combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. Dave and Freya have developed a distinct and compelling signature sound, blending concertina, harmonium, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and cittern with their beautiful and closely intertwined vocal harmonies. Subject matter covers the political and historical as well as the more personal, and their engaging live shows are full of stories as well as songs. People, places and events are brought to life through their intimate, timeless songs and music.
Chesham Folk Club say: “… in the top five that I have ever seen anywhere if not the best.”
Harbottle & Jonas have toured the UK and Germany extensively with their acclaimed fourth album, The Sea Is My Brother. They will be moving away from the seafaring theme for their new album release in Spring 2021.
