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 breathtaking 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. 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. ????? 'Immaculate.' EFDSS Magazine ???? 'Exquisite.' R2 Magazine 'Absolutely amazing!' Kate Rusby 'A stellar performance.' Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2 Folk Show 'A fantastic duo!' Seth Lakeman Having been friends since the age of 12, folk music had long been a feature in the lives of Jon and Jay: Bob Whitley, Jon's father, was (and still is) a well-respected Dorset folk singer, song-writer and folk club organiser. It wasn't until 2012, however, that the two began singing together, after spending a summer becoming inspired by a host of great music at some of the South West's festivals. In spending long hours at the sing-arounds of Sidmouth Folk Festival, as well as experiencing a particularly amazing line-up of folk acts at Larmer Tree Festival 2012, the friends found themselves hooked. From here, Jon and Jay began singing together as Ninebarrow.
