Ninebarrow are a multi-award-winning folk duo, who are impressing audiences across the country with their innovative and captivating take on the folk tradition. Described by Mark Radcliffe as sounding like "two halves of one voice", Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere combine breath taking vocal harmonies and melodies, delivering songs that are inspired and rooted in the landscape and history of the British Isles.
For the first time, the duo will not only be joined by cellist and long-term collaborator, Lee MacKenzie
, but also the extraordinary talent of John Parker
on double bass and Evan Carson
With brand new songs and stunningly realised arrangements of some old favourites, The Ninebarrow Band
promise something absolutely unique.
The BBC Folk Award nominated duo released their latest album, 'The Waters and the Wild'
in April 2018 to widespread critical acclaim. It was awarded 5 stars in both The Morning Star and the English Folk Dance & Song Society’s EDS Magazine, and has received airplay on BBC Radio 2, 3, 6 Music, Wales and Scotland. Folk luminary Mike Harding
has hailed it as "absolutely monumental"
