Ninebarrow in Concert

Event information

Ninebarrow are a multi-award-winning folk duo, who are impressing audiences across the country with their innovative and captivating take on the folk tradition. Described by Mike Harding as sounding ‘damn fine’ by Seth Lakeman as ‘a fantastic duo’ and by Kate Rusby as ‘absolutely amazing’, Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere combine breath taking vocal harmonies and melodies, delivering songs that are inspired and rooted in the landscape and history of the British Isles and inspired by the English folk tradition. The duo have recently been nominated for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award in the ‘Horizon’ category for best emerging artist. Not only exceptional singers and musicians, Ninebarrow are also equally passionate about the stories behind their songs. An evening with the duo isn't just an evening of great music - it's also a night of history, folklore, and storytelling. Ninebarrow were announced winners of Fatea Magazine’s ‘Debut Album of the Year’ 2014; their latest album ‘Releasing the Leaves’ was awarded five stars in both Maverick Magazine and the English Folk Dance and Song Society Magazine, who described it as ‘Immaculate’. It has also been listed in The Telegraph’s Top Folk Albums of 2016. From spellbinding simplicity to intense complexity, from chilling darkness to uplifting optimism – Ninebarrow are winning new fans wherever they go.
