NINEBARROW

13th April 2018


Description

Friday 13th April. 7.30 for 8.00

Ninebarrow (Jon Whitley and Jay Labouchardiere) are a duo who are certainly attracting attention, as a host of nominations including the 2017 Horizon Award will testify. With an easy manner and beautifully balanced harmonies they produce music that is gentle of the ear and soothes the soul, even if the topics of their songs, inspired by the landscape and history of the British Isles, can explore the darker and sadder sides of human nature. Jon and Jay play keyboard, mandola, harmonium and ukulele.

Ninebarrow’s songs are a mixture of the originally-adapted traditional and the traditional-sounding original. Each song is crafted with care and perfectly suits their lilting and high-lonesome voices. Jon and Jay are obviously hugely influenced by their physical surroundings, none more so than on their songs commissioned by Artsreach Dorset, inspired by the South Dorset Ridgeway and designed to raise awareness of the rich archaeological heritage of the area.


Advance tickets are £10 and will be available from the Brockweir and Hewelsfield Village shop about 4 weeks before each event or from Adrian Birch.  [email protected] Or 01291 689812. £12 on the door.
