Exceptional multi-instrumentalists Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin have proved they are in a league of their own after winning the coveted Best Duo title at the 15th Radio 2 Folk Awards at the Albert Hall.
Singer, song writer Hannah Martin is a skilled fiddler, viola and banjo player with a real lightness of touch, a distinctive voice and a gift for tapping traditional music veins to create contemporary song. Her songs weave Folklore and Legend, old and new with beautiful melodies, creating haunting compositions delivered with bold and beautiful singing.
Phillip is one of the Uk’s finest slide guitarists having studied in Calcutta with India’s premier slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya. Phillip is also a virtuoso on the harmonica, his innovative playing combines country blues and folk styles with beat-boxing to create a jaw dropping and much converted 21st century harmonica sound heavily steeped in tradition.
“This duo have brought something quite original to the genre with their haunting mixture of English, Irish, Indian and Celtic textures.” Steve Knightley
