On Friday, May 11, folk duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin will be performing a set full of exotic flavours at the Eden Café.

Their influences cover a broad spectrum, including traditional English folk, classical Indian music and American blues, to create a sound with depth and charm.

The duo’s haunting vocals are accompanied by a variety of instruments, including slide guitars, the fiddle, banjo and even beat-box harmonica, which have all been used to great effect on their debut album Singing the Bones.

The album has received a warm welcome from the likes of BBC Radio 2’s Mike Harding and BBC Radio 3 Late Junction presenter Fiona Talkington, as well as audiences at Glastonbury Festival, Maida Vale studios and in Nashville, Tennessee.

Ian Williams, Eden’s Director of Operations, said: “I’m sure that Phillip and Hannah’s beautiful melodies and the café’s relaxed atmosphere will make a great combination.”

The gig takes place from 8pm until midnight and tickets cost £4, or £3 for concessions or tickets bought at the café beforehand.

A selection of locally sourced beverages will be on offer throughout the night. Bread, dips and a choice of seasonal hot food will be available until 9:30pm.
