Sanders and Savage.jfif

Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage provide a touch of ‘Americana’, yet are  quintessentially English. Traditional, yet contemporary, with their individual writing style. Playful and instinctive, they make music with such panache and natural chemistry it makes perfect sense. Hannah Sanders has a pure, beautiful, even mystical voice. Ben Savage is a singular guitarist with a sound as distinctive as it is innovative. Together their harmonies and unique stage presence shimmer with an infectious enthusiasm and joy for the connection music  offers

Ed & Dave.jpg

Supporting Hannah and Ben will be our own Ed McGurk and Dave Howard. Having worked together in Bandersnatch their musicianship complements each other perfectly with Ed playing a mean guitar and bouzouki and Dave wowing on  dobbro, mandolin and guitars. Fancy string-work, fine vocals and a discerning choice of songs.

Who could ask for more!
