2014 BBC FOLK AWARDS – BEST DUO
2013 SPIRAL AWARDS – BEST DUO
2012 SOUTH WEST MUSIC AWARDS – BEST ACT

Recently described as, "Authentic, haunting roots music from a first class duo" (Seth Lakeman), Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are one of the most exciting and innovative duos to appear on the folk/roots/acoustic scene in recent years – a journey that has resulted in their winning the  'Best Duo' in the 2014 BBC Folk Awards, and recently a second nomination for 2016. 

With a rapidly expanding following and a truly unique sound that effortlessly spans many genres, the duo have been touring constantly for the past three years, winning new fans of all ages wherever they go. Festival appearances have included regular Glastonbury slots; all the major folk festivals including mainstage slots at Sidmouth Folk Week; Broadstairs; Warwick; Shrewsbury; Gate To Southwell; Shepley Spring; Priddy; and a constant presence on the greenfield festival circuit, at events such as Larmer Tree (mainstage); Sunrise Celebration (mainstage); and Green Man. Over the past year they have also visited Japan, South Africa, the USA and across Europe and have upcoming tours to Canada, Australia and India already lined up for 2016.

The alchemy of Martin’s ever evocative songwriting, fiddle and banjo playing and the much extolled skills of Henry on dobro, harmonica and lap steel fuse into a wholly distinctive world sound - songs of lament, tunes of hope, and totally unpredictable twist and turn music, burgeoning with deft double bass from Matt Downer (Jamie Smith’s Mabon) and the textured percussion of James Taylor. A mesmerising release to further endorse the reputation of a duo who have deservedly gained a rapid and sure foothold in the higher echelons of the roots genre.

"On hearing the first notes of the first track I knew that I was listening to a modern classic. One of the most exciting albums I've heard in years" - Mike Harding

"Subtle, atmospheric, bravely original. A combination of virtuosity, intensity and charisma” 
Robin Denselow, The Guardian 

"An imaginative and innovative album - songs that linger in the memory held together by the fine musicianship of Henry and Martin. Strong and original - an unusual treat" - Martin Chilton, Daily Telegraph
