Harbottle & Jonas
July 14, 2021 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM BST£10 – £25
Partners in life as well as music, Devon duo Harbottle & Jonas have established themselves as one of the most exciting prospects on the folk circuit today, combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. With their signature sound of concertina, harmonium, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and cittern and powerful close vocal harmonies, Dave and Freya will be presenting songs from fifth album The Beacon, along with old favourites.
“an album that will figure strongly when people start to think about the best of 2021” FATEA Magazine
“[an] intriguing release of great originality, and enjoyment… nothing short of sublime” Folk Radio UK
“thoughtful words and music rooted in tradition yet entirely current… one of the best albums born in lockdown” Americana UK
The album “The Beacon” is named for Ugborough Beacon, an ancient site that looms over South Brent, the Dartmoor village that David Harbottle and Freya Jonas call home. This album represents (in Freya’s own words): “a journey of discovery, that has taught us the importance of love, compassion and empathy, whilst discovering the needs and delights of our inner creature.”
