Honey & The Bear - 10 Year Anniversary Tour
Celebrating a decade with a return to the venue where it all started back in 2014, with a selection of songs from across those years, three studio albums and earlier material.
Featuring special guests Evan Carson (Drums/Percussion) & Toby Shaer (Fiddle & Flutes/Whistles)
Honey & the Bear were a tour de force on the UK Folk Festival circuit in 2023. The British folk and roots duo 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, comprised of songwriters Jon Hart (guitar, bass, bouzouki) and Lucy Hart (guitar, ukulele, bass, banjo, mandolin & percussion), are often joined on-stage by band guests Evan Carson (percussion) and Toby Shaer (Fiddle/Flutes/Whistles) who also feature on both Honey & 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 & The Lost Boys on two UK tours and opened for The Shires at world renowned Snape Maltings Concert Hall. They returned to Snape Maltings under their own steam just two years later to perform a sold out show. Third album 'Away Beyond The Fret' was released 3rd November 2023.
