NINEBARROW at Edinburgh FC / EFC
Ninebarrow visit EFC for the first time and will open our new season of weekly gigs. They are a multi-award-winning folk duo impressing audiences across the country with their innovative and captivating take on the folk tradition. Described by Mark Radcliffe as sounding like two halves of one voice and by Kate Rusby as absolutely amazing, Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere combine breath taking vocal harmonies and melodies, delivering original songs that are inspired and rooted in the landscape and history of the British Isles. As well as crafting unique and engaging original material, Ninebarrow also take a wide-range of traditional folk songs and rework them in their own, distinctive way.
In 2017, the duo 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 relinquished their jobs as a teacher and GP in favour of a full-time music career.
