"Subtle, atmospheric... Bravely original"
Robin Denselow, The Guardian

"Keen, curious and concerned intellects are at work here. Hannah Martin is an enthralling singer; Phillip Henry plays all manner of guitars and the harmonica, terrifically."
Julian May, Songlines

Winners of 2014's BBC Radio Two Folk Award for Best Duo, Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, have come a long way on their journey.

In 2009, Phillip, one of the UK's finest slide guitarists and harmonica players, was playing in alt-folk outfit The Roots Union, when he met Devonian fiddle-singer Hannah Martin, and the pair instantly recognised a very powerful musical connection. When the band ended, they continued as a duo, playing all over the country, from Glastonbury festival to busking sessions on the seafront at Sidmouth Folk Week.

It was during one of these busking stints that Steve Knightley recognised the potential of Henry and Martin's partnership, and invited them to accompany Show Of Hands on a nationwide tour, culminating with a show at the Royal Albert Hall at Easter 2012.

The pair's first album, Singing The Bones, was released in 2011 and the duo went on to win "Best Folk Act" at the 2012 South West Music Awards, and were voted Best Duo at the Radio Two Folk Awards almost exactly five years since they met.

More recently they have worked in the US,  Canada and Australia and as well as around 130 UK dates, they have also played in South Africa, France, Norway, Japan, The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium.
