Two of the British folk scene’s top performers have teamed up for a limited number of shows this year to perform their own and each other’s music. Since Daniels landmark solo statement What’s Here What’s Gone in 2014, he’s put down several more markers on the musical map. Revolve and Rotate saw him transporting the 19th century’s closest thing to hi-fi, the giant steel discs of the polyphon, to modern transcription. All in the context of a 20-year career playing melodeon for acts like Jethro Tull and Riverdance. One of the finest harmonica players of his generation, Will Pound has pushed the boundaries working with The Will Pound Band, Martin Simpson, Guy Chambers and Concerto Caledonia. Nominated 3 times for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician Of The Year Award and twice FATEA Magazine Instrumentalist Of the Year. This double header/duo show promises to a refined mix of well-crafted songs, musical innovation and instrumental virtuosity.
