Details

Edgelarks began their musical journey together living in a small caravan in the hills near Exmouth, Devon. Phil had returned, Chaturangui in tow, from studying slide guitar in India with the master musician Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya. Hannah had grown up playing fiddle at traditional folk sessions. The pair met when they were both recruited to alt-roots outfit The Roots Union and when the band folded, Phil and Hannah formed a duo. Spotted busking on the seafront at Sidmouth Folk Festival by champion of independent music Steve Knightley, they soon found themselves touring nationally, supporting the likes of Show of Hands and Seth Lakeman, and eventually winning the prestigious Best Duo award at the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. From recording their first album, Singing the Bones, at home in their living room, they have gone on to produce four more records, each time refining the process and honing their production skills – Mynd, Live in Calstock, and Watershed (which garnered them a second nomination for Best Duo at the BBC Folk Awards in 2016.). With the fourth album, Edgelarks, came another Folk Award nomination, and the decision to adopt the band name.
Feather will mark another step in their journey. An exploration of the musical possibilities of just two people, they plan to translate their formidable live show into album format. A set of songs that will celebrate joy, push musical boundaries, and call out for hope. www.edgelarks.co.uk . (photo credit to Jolyon Holroyd)
