The rapidly-rising young English alt-folk duo have toured their haunting and spellbinding self-penned and traditional songs across the UK at the Bellowhead, The Unthanks and Lanterns On The Lake, and play here from their incredible debut album Kite.
Delicate, haunting and heartbreaking are just a few of the words that have been used to describe Jonny and Lucy's music. After meeting at Newcastle University 6 years ago, they formed an unlikely alliance - unlikely because Jonny with his bittersweet kitchen-sink dramas, shows sympathy with American storytellers like Dylan and Tom Waits, while Lucy's traditional folkie upbringing and vocal style couldn't be more English.
Just as likely to appeal to fans of Gillian Welch and Low Anthem as the traditional folk world, their six-track EP entitled 'The North Farm Sessions' received 4 stars from The Guardian and Q, BBC Radio 1, 2 and 6 airplay, and sold heavily on tour supports with The Unthanks and Bellowhead, and at summer festivals including Green Man, End of the Road and Cambridge.
18 months after their acclaimed debut EP, Jonny Kearney and Lucy Farrell finally release their debut album, Kite, produced by Adrian McNally (The Unthanks).
