Award winning duo, Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker perform at Ramsbottom Folk Club

On Wednesday 18 May BBC Folk Awards 2015 Best Duo winners Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker perform at Ramsbottom Folk Club.


Their gift for inhabiting songs that are centuries old and making them personal and present again is what makes the music of Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker a rare and precious thing. The combination of Josienne’s exquisitely nuanced, emotionally affecting voice and Ben’s intricately expressive guitar technique make for an exquisite live performance. They will perform tracks from their latest album, Nothing Can Bring Back The Hour, which has earned five star reviews across the board.

“Josienne and Ben are going to be big… finely crafted with clever lyrics… a real grower” R2 Magazine

Counting Jim Moray and BBC 6 Music DJ Cerys Matthews amongst their fans they have played such auspicious stages as Cambridge Folk Festival, Bristol’s Colston Hall and London’s Purcell Rooms and have been invited to appear in the National Theatre’s production of Our Country’s Good later this year.

Tickets are £12 and are available at www.themet.biz, by calling 0161 761 2216 or from Tourist Information at The Fusilier Museum, Bury.
