Four time BBC Radio2 Folk Award nominees Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker infuse ageless stories of love and loss with their exquisite command of many instruments.
Whether interpreting words centuries old or singing her own authentic lyrics, Josienne’s jewel-like voice finds the nuance in the simplest phrase and sends it, effortlessly, straight to your heart.
Ben’s musical tact and flair for arrangement provide the perfect setting, allowing the song centre--stage. They met in July 2009 and together they have resolutely forged their own path through traditional music.
Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker’s album Nothing Can Bring Back the Hour was one of the most anticipated releases of 2014 and was nominated in the Best Album category at that year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards along with yet another nomination for Best Duo.
With the release of new album Overnight, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker have brought us an album of wonder and depth. The classic quality of these songs, the meticulous beauty of the arrangements, the blanket-warm production and perfect pairing of exquisite vocals and virtuosic guitar is the culmination of everything these idiosyncratically talented musicians have been working towards since they first met.
Doors: 7.45pm | Unreserved Seating
