Having thoroughly enjoyed playing together for their recent EFDSS project The Lost Tunes, Ben Walker and Rob Harbron are touring together.

Both consummate musicians at the very top of the game, they will offer audiences an evening of spellbinding music and the stories behind it, combining solo sets with a selection of traditional and original tunes played together. Hear and see for yourself here.

Ben Walker was recently hailed as ‘one of the best acoustic guitarists in the world’ by Total Guitar magazine. A BBC Folk Award winner, he has a passion for putting old jewels in new settings, for fusing traditional and contemporary music and for playing it like no-one else. With six critically acclaimed albums with singer/songwriter Josienne Clarke and more than fifty as a producer of other artists, this multi-instrumentalist is sought out as an arranger and composer from punk to Proms. His music has been described as ‘thoughtful’ (Guardian), ‘deft’ (Telegraph) and even ‘legendary’ (Morning Star).

Rob Harbron is a uniquely skilled player of the English concertina, described by the Guardian as a ‘concertina wizard’ and renowned for his highly individual and harmonic style of playing. He is a member of Leveret (alongside Sam Sweeney and Andy Cutting), with whom he has toured extensively and released three landmark albums. Known for his work with a wide range of artists including Jon Boden and the Remnant Kings, Emma Reid and The Full English, he has also worked extensively with the National Youth Folk Ensemble and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Now he is exploring solo playing with a repertoire which includes settings of rediscovered traditional tunes as well as many of his fine compositions.
