Thanks to the chance encounter when last month's guest Steve Knightley came across Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin busking, this duo came to the attention of the wider public when they toured with Show of Hands. Since that time they have gone from strength to strength being awarded Best Duo in the 2014 BBC Folk Awards and nominated again in 2016 along with many other awards and plaudits.
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. Never forgetting the pair of fabulous voices working in tight harmony.
