Ninebarrow first perform as a duo followed by a spectacular finale where both choirs accompany Ninebarrow for 8 of the duo's songs, arranged for choir by Roy Rashbrook.
In a one-off, unmissable concert, Ninebarrow will be joined on stage by two of the finest amateur choirs in the country: Hart Voices and The Chantry Singers. With stunning choral arrangements by St Paul's Cathedral Choir Singer, Roy Rashbrook, this promises to be an evening to remember!
Ninebarrow are a multi-award-winning folk duo, who are impressing audiences across the country with their innovative and captivating take on the folk tradition. Described by Mark Radcliffe as sounding like ‘two halves of one voice’, by Seth Lakeman as ‘a fantastic duo’ and by Kate Rusby as ‘absolutely amazing’, Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere combine breath taking vocal harmonies and melodies, delivering songs that are inspired and rooted in the landscape and history of the British Isles. Most recently, the duo were nominated in the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in the ‘Horizon’ category for Best Emerging Artist; their latest album, ‘The Waters and the Wild’ (released in April 2018) was awarded 5-stars in both The Morning Star and the English Folk Dance & Song Society’s EDS Magazine, and has received airplay on BBC Radios 2, 3, 6 Music, Wales and Scotland. Folk luminary, Mike Harding, has hailed it as ‘absolutely monumental’.
