Edgelarks - Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin

BBC award-winning duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are now Edgelarks.

They are firmly established on the roots and acoustic scene. The duo blend British traditional and original songs with Indian classical slide guitar, stomping beatbox, harmonica and fiddle to blistering effect. Their new album takes the idea that thresholds, despite often being places of marginalisation, are also places of change – and therefore places of hope.

WHY? ‘Bravely original’ The Guardian
