Debs ('at' sign) folk in the barn dot co dot ukay   
Joined up and written the usual way.

Born from the work of the duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, Edgelarks combine exquisite folk with influences as diverse as the blues and Indian classical slide guitar, to create a sound that is “Subtle, atmospheric and bravely original” (The Guardian).

The BBC Folk Award winners take their strong roots sound, mixing original song writing with stomping beatbox harmonica, soaring fiddle and vocal harmonies, running wilder with each repeat play. A busy collaborative period has included work as part of the Gigspanner Big Band (featuring members of Bellowhead and Steeleye Span); and performing at BBC Radio Two’s Festival In A Day to a Hyde Park crowd of 50,000–supporting KylieMinogue!

Regulars at Folk in the Barn as we love them, they will bring their formidable live show, making much more noise than only two people should be able to, taking audiences on a story telling journey around a new musical landscape.

 “Extraordinary...I was blown away by them!”  
Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music



"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
***** Top of the World album

"Rich and complex - there is something of June Tabor about Hannah's vocal performance - a voice that is strong and flexible and which, coupled with Phillip's instrumental virtuosity, suggests we're hearing stars of the future"
Dai Jeffries, R2 ****

"This duo has a combination of virtuosity, intensity and charisma
that merits a slot on much bigger stages"

John L. Walters, The Guardian

"An imaginative and innovative album - songs that linger in the memory
held together by the fine musicianship of Henry and Martin.
Strong and original - an unusual treat"

Martin Chilton, Daily Telegraph ****
