Devon based duo Harbottle & Jonas (Dave and Freya) are partners in life as well as music, combining their love of the rich stories and music of traditional folk with their own original and contemporary interpretations. They have developed a signature sound, blending concertina, harmonium, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and dobra with their beautiful and closely intertwined vocal harmonies.
These two teachers turned road-hardened folk troubadours have plenty of tales to tell, old and new, and the stories between the songs are as entertaining as the music itself so you are likely to find a smile on your face (even when the content of the song turns macabre). Well-researched and crafted, their repertoire covers a range of social, political and historical issues. They also sing about family, the Devil, Malcolm and Grimsby!
Harbottle & Jonas are currently recording a new album which will be released in early 2019. Watch this space.
They have received plaudits from folk icons including Seth & Geoff Lakeman, Jon Boden, Rod Clements, Lankum, Declan Sinnott, BBC Introducing and have been endorsed by Seasalt Clothing. Their music had been streamed in excess of 1,000,000 times in 25 different countries and they have also played a gig with Martin Carthy. Well travelled across the UK and playing up to 200 gigs each year, Harbottle & Jonas have managed to establish themselves as one of the most exciting prospects on the folk circuit. Dave & Freya will be leading the folk course at The Internationally renowned Dartington Summer School this year.
