Harbottle & Jonas are an up-and-coming young folk duo currently based in Totnes, Devon.

David Harbottle was born in Cullercoats, Tyne & Wear; Freya Jonas is from Westcott, Surrey. The pair met at The University of Liverpool while they were studying for their Music Degrees and in their early days busked together around Europe before settling in Liverpool for a while.

They have been based in Devon for 6 years but their roots are deeply planted in Northumbrian soil. Their music is eclectic, always accompanied with a great story and has won plaudits from folk luminaries such as Seth Lakeman, Jon Boden, Rod Clements and Declan Sinnott.

Playing over 100 gigs each year, this fine duo is becoming increasingly well-known throughout the UK and Live In The North East is delighted to be hosting their début North Shields gig.
