Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker

Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 21 October 2017, from £13 - Book now

This event has now been cancelled

Both classically trained musicians, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker have risen through the London acoustic circuit to become one of the most acclaimed new artists on the English folk scene.

Featuring Walker’s expressive guitar style and Clarke’s haunting vocals as they visit themes of death and doom, the pair cite Sandy Denny, June Tabor and Nic Jones as major influences on their interpretations of traditional songs.

Their sophomore album, Nothing Can Bring Back The Hour, helped them to scoop Best Duo at the 2015 BBC Folk Awards – while last year’s Overnight won even more favourable reviews, with one deeming it ‘their most ambitious record, as well as their most accomplished’.

This unusual lunchtime concert takes place in HOME’s lesser-spotted Theatre 2.
