Harbottle and Jonas

with Special Guest Ben Morgan-Brown

We are delighted to welcome Harbottle and Jonas to Acoustic Roots.

‘Disarmingly honest and spine-tingling moments’ – R2  ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

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, cittern, 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 folk clubs and festivals up and down the country.

Their music is eclectic and always accompanied with a great story. Together the husband and wife duo combine the rich traditions of folk music with original and contemporary interpretations through a blend of closely intertwined vocal harmonies and compelling and authentic musical arrangements, blending concertina, harmonium, banjo, cittern, stomp box and acoustic guitar. They have developed a unique and original signature sound, that is unmistakably Harbottle and Jonas.
