Edgelarks: Philip Henry and Hannah Martin
March 25, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm£12 - £14
Edgelarks fly in on the tailwind of BBC award-winning duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin. Firmly established on the roots and acoustic scene, the ‘’bravely original’’ (The Guardian) duo blends British traditional music with Indian classical slide guitar, stomping beatbox and harmonica to blistering effect.
Their new album, by the same name, takes the idea that thresholds, despite often being places of marginalisation, are also places of change – and therefore places of hope. That in the end, we have far more in common than things that divide us, because we are all liminal – we are all just passing through.
Philip and Hannah’s 2016 gig at Victoria Hall was a sell out, so book early to avoid disappointment.
