Folk prom: josienne clark and ben walker
Mon 24th Jul 17 20:00 edit
Level 3 Lounge | Roots Unearthed
Radio 2 Folk Award Best Duo winners, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker, have been playing together since 2011 and cite Sandy Denny, June Tabor, Nic Jones and Pierre Bensusan as respective influences, but theirs is a captivating sound that’s all their own.
With the release of their latest album Overnight, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker have brought us an music full of wonder and depth. The classic quality of these songs, the meticulous beauty of the arrangements, the blanket-warm production and perfect pairing of exquisite vocals and virtuosic guitar is the culmination of everything these idiosyncratically talented musicians have been working towards since they first met.
The way this duo inhabit songs that are sometimes centuries old, making them personal and present
again, while also pricking the heart with their own tales of everyday love and loss makes the music of Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker a rare and precious thing.
