NINEBARROW are a multi-award-winning folk duo, who are impressing audiences across the country with their innovative and captivating take on the folk tradition. Described by Mark Radcliffe as sounding like ‘two halves of one voice’, by Seth Lakeman as ‘a fantastic duo’ and by Kate Rusby as ‘absolutely amazing’ Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere combine breath-taking vocal harmonies and melodies, delivering songs that are inspired and rooted in the landscape and history of the British Isles.
Most recently, the duo were nominated in the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in the ‘Horizon’ category for Best Emerging Artist; their latest album, ‘the Waters and the Wild’ (released in April 2018) has received airplay on BBC Radios 2, 3, 6 Music, Wales and Scotland and has been hailed by Fatea Magazine as ‘A masterful album that fully sets the duo amid the brightest stars in the folk firmament’ and as absolutely monumental’ by folk luminary Mike Harding. https://www.ninebarrow.co.uk/
