Phillip and Hannah step into spotlight

A DUO who have just completed a major tour as support act will be stepping into the spotlight themselves at Boston Folk Club on Monday.

Fresh from their successful nationwide trek with Show of Hands, Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin have also been picking up plaudits for their album Singing the Bones, with plays on BBC Radio Two’s Mike Harding Show and Late Junction on Radio Three.

Phillip is considered by many to be one of the finest slide guitarists this country has produced, bringing together folk melodies of the British Isles, blues, gospel and Indian music in his original compositions and arrangements.

He is also making a name for himself as a harmonica player, arranging tunes and songs in his own unique style that incorporates blues, traditional melodies and human beatbox.

Hannah is a singer, songwriter, banjo and fiddle player from Devon.

Her songs weave folklore and legend with beautiful melodies and innovative arrangements.

The pair have recorded in Nashville and played gigs in Ireland, Germany and the Channel Islands, as well as touring all over the UK. They are regulars on the festival circuit, having appeared at Glastonbury, Cambridge, Larmer Tree, Green Man, Sidmouth and many others.

The show at Boston Folk Club is on Monday, June 13, upstairs at the Eagle in West Street.

The music starts at 8.15pm.
