Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker

Why do we pidgeonhole music into genres? I suppose it makes it easier to decide what we like, what we'll listen to, what we'll go and see. And of course if you've won the Radio 2 folk duo of the Year 2015 award then you must be 'folk'. But to me the music performed at the Harwich Festival by this duo was just great music - thoughtful and delivered with great feeling (and a great voice).
Jo Silverston, Anna Jenkins, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker - all smiles! Catch them at a festival this summer. You won't hear better contemplative songs this summer.
