Edgelarks are the musical duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin. They combine exquisite folk with influences as diverse as the blues and Indian classical slide guitar, to create a sound that is “Subtle, atmospheric and bravely original” (The Guardian).
The BBC Folk Award winners take their strong roots sound, mixing original song writing with stomping beatbox harmonica, soaring fiddle and vocal harmonies, running wilder with each repeat play. A busy collaborative period has included work as part of the Gigspanner Big Band; and performing at BBC Radio Two’s Festival In A Day to a Hyde Park crowd of 50,000–supporting Kylie Minogue!
“Extraordinary…I was blown away by them!” Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music
They are playing one last online gig before the arrival of their mini-lark, so join them to ease a lockdown evening on Friday 5th February, with some new songs, and some old songs. They will happily play, requests – but advance warning would make it easier to oblige. Phil is preparing a final (for now) instalment of Blues and Brews and they will feature songs from the new album, Henry Martin; you might even get a world premiere of a couple of brand new songs.
Date: Friday 5th February
Time (GMT): 7.30pm
Any other information:
Edgelarks will perform using YouTube. Performance starts at 7.30pm on YouTube with a 45 minute set, followed by a 15 minute interval, then the gig starts again at 8.30pm for another 45 minute set.
