CHANTRY SINGERS AND NINEBARROW
Who are Ninebarrow?
NINEBARROW are a multi-award-winning folk duo who are impressing audiences across the country with their innovative and captivating take on the folk tradition. Described by Mike Harding as sounding ‘damn fine’ and by Kate Rusby as ‘absolutely amazing’, Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere combine breath-taking vocal harmonies and melodies, delivering original songs that are inspired and rooted in the landscape and history of the British Isles.
As well as crafting unique and engaging original material, Ninebarrow also take a wide-range of traditional folk songs and rework them in their own, distinctive way. Not only exceptional singers and musicians, Ninebarrow are also equally passionate about the stories behind their songs, combining their music with history, folklore and storytelling.
The concert will feature choral arrangements of British and European folk music as well as a solo set by Ninebarrow themselves. The two will then combine for a finale of material taken from Ninebarrow’s previous records plus new arrangements of songs from their forthcoming album due for release in April – The Waters and the Wild.
Chantry Singers are a Chamber choir based in Guildford, Surrey who enjoy singing a wide range of music and are pleased to be collaborating with Ninebarrow in this exciting concert.
