Partners in life and music, dynamic Devon duo Harbottle & Jonas are currently touring with their fourth and most ambitious album, ‘The Sea Is My Brother’.
Combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting, the album’s maritime theme is maintained across political, historical, and personal stories and songs.
A compelling live show during which David & Freya blend their distinctive solo voices and close harmonies with concertina, harmonium, mandola, stomp box and acoustic guitar. This signature sound has been honed by over six years of performing together and up to 200 gigs a year including the Great Hall Dartington and folk clubs and festivals up and down the country and in Germany.
With plaudits from Seth & Geoff Lakeman, Jon Boden, Rod Clements, Lankum, Declan Sinnott, BBC Introducing, and Tom Robinson (BBC6 Music), Harbottle & Jonas have managed to establish themselves as one of the most exciting prospects on the folk circuit
