Grayshott Folk Club presents:
HONEY & THE BEAR
British folk and roots duo, Honey & the Bear, combine delicately interweaving vocal harmonies with emotive and evocative songwriting. With a diverse range of sounds and textures, and rhythms that flow from the fast and furious to gentle ballads, their live performances are spirited and dynamic.
Conjuring stories in song, they tell tales of Suffolk folklore, courage, passion and heartbreak. The multi instrumentalist pair, comprised of songwriters Jon Hart (guitar, bass, bazouki) and Lucy Hart (guitar, ukulele, bass, banjo, mandolin & percussion), have been writing and performing together since 2014, having met at a songwriting event two years previously.
Since then, they have played at many revered venues and festivals across the UK as well as travelling across the channel for their first European tour. 2019 saw the release of their first full studio album ‘Made In The Aker’ with which they toured the UK in October 2019.
At the outset, 2020 was shaping up to be their big breakthrough year but everything stopped in its tracks in March 2020. Undeterred, Honey & The Bear set about entertaining their fans online and unsurprisingly, their following and popularity have increased while live music events have been put on hold. They recently played at Beardy Festival, which has been one of the only live Festivals to take place this year. Now they are taking their uplifting and joyous sounds to Grayshott Folk Club for one of the first live, indoor gigs since lockdown began.
“Dexterously played with beautifully crafted arrangements around a perfect pairing of voices delivering personal, fine songs. This is a stunning album.” Fatea
“You may not have encountered them before, but to paraphrase a quote from another bear and honey partnership, any day spent with them could be your favourite day.” Bright Young Folk
“Accomplished, easy-on-the-ear acoustic folk-pop for grown-ups” fRoots Magazine
+ Ellie Fountain
Ellie is an ex-ACM, Guildford student, who came to sing and play for us in October 2018 as a support to The Churchfitters. She has a wonderful voice and some of her recordings on Youtube have had an enormous number of views.
During lockdown she has been busy writing lots of new songs and she can’t wait to perform them for us. We can’t wait to hear them……
Here’s a song by Elliie from 2015 called “Wait”
