Manchester Folk Festival 2021/ Harbottle & Jonas Trio

Please note this event takes place at Anthony Burgess Foundation, 3 Cambridge St, Manchester, M1 5BY

Devon duo Harbottle & Jonas have established themselves as one of the most exciting prospects on the folk circuit today, combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. Dave Harbottle and Freya Jonas have evolved a compelling live signature sound blending concertina, harmonium, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and cittern with their powerful close vocal harmonies. Touring now with latest album, The Beacon, Cornish fiddle player Annie Baylis joins them, weaving in her instrument and a third heavenly vocal.

This event is part of Manchester Folk Festival – an urban folk festival. It takes place from 21-23 October 2021, in and around HOME and the city centre. Over the autumn weekend, they present an exhilarating range of events, with the spotlight on contemporary and traditional English folk music.
