Harbottle & Jonas
Partners in life and in music, dynamic Devon-based folk duo Harbottle & Jonas are one of the most exciting acts on the UK circuit today, combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. Dave and Freya have developed a distinct and compelling signature sound, blending concertina, harmonium, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and cittern with their beautiful and closely intertwined vocal harmonies.
Subject matter covers the historical as well as the more personal, with their engaging live shows full of stories as well as beautiful songs. People, places and events are brought to life through their intimate, timeless music.
Their newest album The Beacon was released in March 2021, entering the top 30 of the Official UK Folk Chart, and was declared a “sublimely exquisite offering” by Folk Radio UK.
