This show is two sets.

Charlie says “It’s easy to miss out songs we’ve always loved playing in favour of the current shiny new album, so it’s lovely to rediscover so many rarities in one sweep”. The evening promises a multi-layered show as Charlie and Julian swap between guitar, piano, ukulele, mandolin, autoharp and harmonium.

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin) Enjoy your very own Nettlebed gig with these BBC Best Duo Folk Award winners and members of Peter Knight’s Gigspanner Big Band in the comfort of your own home!

Spotted busking on the seafront at Sidmouth Folk Festival by champion of independent music, Steve Knightley, they soon found themselves touring nationally, supporting the likes of Show of Hands and Seth Lakeman.

The Guardian says “This duo has a combination of virtuosity, intensity and charisma that merits a slot on much bigger stages”.

This show is two sets + a Zoom session afterwards.

Their new 'handmade' album – ‘Henry Martin’, created entirely by themselves, from home - is an album about overcoming: about learning to do it yourself because you can't get the usual help; about not giving up; about not stopping playing, even in the face of disaster. Taking its name both from combining Edgelarks' surnames, and from an old Dartmoor song that features on the record, Henry Martin is Edgelarks' first album entirely composed of traditional songs. It embraces their usual innovative musical approach to arrangements. This is an album that looks back, to hundreds of years of music making in these islands.

The show will feature of songs from the new album as well as some old favourites. There may also be some completely new tracks they’ve been working on and not yet recorded!

As shows are promoted by the Artists themselves the Folk Club will not be handling the ticketing. It is being done through their ticket agencies. This way we are also not divulging any of your details to a third party which would require your permission.

We would ask that for those who can afford it, to buy the appropriate number of tickets to reflect the people who are going to enjoy their shows ... Thank you.

We hope that you will enjoy the performances which will also be helping both the Artists and the Folk Club in these difficult times.
