This event has been and gone.
Settle Storytelling Festival
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Harbottle & Jonas believe we all need hope, community and kindness now more than ever.
Partners in life as well as music, 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. Storytelling is at the heart of their songs and their subject matter covers the historical as well as the more personal.
During this live session, they will share songs from The Beacon which focus on hope and hearth, nature and nurture. The Beacon’s sound is both intimate and full of wide-eyed joy at the world around us. It reminds us to remain humble in the face of nature, to find comfort in the warmth of home, and stands as a signal of hope that we will once again experience the joy of communion through music, and sing together once more.

Harbottle & Jonas
Fast emerging and dynamic Devon duo Harbottle & Jonas are on tour with their fourth album The Sea Is My Brother. There is a real maritime flavour to this superb album, every song tells a story and the storytelling continues between songs. A great live act, their songs cover the political and historical as well as the more personal. Partners in life as well as music, Dave and Freya combine a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. Over 6 years of writing and performing together they have evolved a compelling live signature sound, blending their distinctive solo voices with concertina, harmonium, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and dobro with their powerful close vocal harmonies. They have received plaudits from folk icons including Seth & Geoff Lakeman, Jon Boden, Rod Clements, Lankum, Declan Sinnott, BBC Introducing and have been endorsed by Seasalt Clothing. Their music had been streamed in excess of 1,000,000 times in 25 different countries and they have also played a gig with Martin Carthy. Well travelled across the UK and playing up to 200 gigs each year, Harbottle & Jonas have managed to establish themselves as one of the most exciting prospects on the folk circuit. Dave & Freya will be leading the folk course at The Internationally renowned Dartington Summer School for the second time this year.
