Honey and The Bear at Maltby

by | 29 March 2024 | Music, Worksop

Making their debut at The Wesley Centre on Friday 19th April are Honey and The Bear – a terrific folk and roots duo from Suffolk who will be bringing their stellar band as part of their Away Beyond The Fret new album and 10th anniversary tour.

Honey and The Bear were a tour de force on the UK Folk Festival circuit in 2022 and combine delicately interweaving vocal harmonies with emotive and evocative songwriting.

With a diverse range of sounds and textures, and rhythms that flow from the fast and furious to gentle ballads, their live performances are spirited and dynamic. Conjuring stories in song, they tell tales of Suffolk folklore, courageous people they admire and their passion for nature which has been enchanting audiences up and down the country.

The multi-instrumentalist pair, comprising songwriters Jon Hart (guitar, bass, bouzouki) and Lucy Hart (guitar, ukulele, bass, banjo, mandolin and percussion), are joined on-stage by band guests Evan Carson (percussion) and Toby Shaer (fiddle, flute and whistle), who also feature on Honey and The Bear studio albums.

Together they have played at many revered venues and festivals across the UK as well as travelled across the channel for their first European tour. They supported Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys on two UK tours and opened for The Shires at world renowned Snape Malting’s Concert Hall, later returning there under their own steam to perform a sold-out show.

A great night of music awaits, don’t miss it! Tickets are £15.00 and available from the venue reception on 01709 811118 or online at www.wegottickets.com.
