BBC FOLK Award nominees Ninebarrow are set to entertain audiences at Woodford Village Hall.

They will be performing on Saturday, October 6 as part of their national tour this autumn.

In a few short years, the Dorset-based duo have carved themselves a distinctive niche on the folk roots scene for their outstanding harmonies, delicate instrumentation and engaging songs.

In 2017, they were nominated at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in the Horizon category for Best Emerging Artist.

One of the highest accolades in their genre, it was made even more exceptional because it was only a few months prior to this that Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere left their jobs as a teacher and GP in favour of a full-time music career.

Named after Nine Barrow Down in the Purbeck hills, their first release While the Blackthorn Burns was voted FATEA Magazine’s Best Debut Album of 2014, while their last album Releasing the Leaves (2016) saw a volley of critical acclaim.

They have released their new record The Waters and the Wild. In June 2018, the album also reached Number 2 in Amazon’s Folk Best-Seller chart.

The concert starts at 7.45pm, doors open at 7.15pm. Tickets:
