My Wife and I wanted to leave a review to say how incredibly this duo are.
We utterly adored them and they made the evening so special. Everyone who came could tell how much passion they have for your craft and it really showed.
There were no issues on the day, no problems with learning our requests and they even managed to put up with our drunken families - all with a smile on their faces.
Even if you don't think you like folk music now, you will after hearing them.
In summary: Brilliant.

"We really could not be happier, thank you so much for performing at our wedding in Topsham. Thoroughly recommend to anyone (I just wish we could give more than 5 stars) and look forward to listening to your CD!
Absolutely lovely people and fabulous voices, suited our small venue very well. Dave made all the organisation very easy and gave us lots of choices prior to the Wedding. Thanks again!!"

We wanted to say a huge thank you for playing the music at our wedding - Harbottle and Jonas were absolutely amazing and helped make it such a special day for us. So many of our guests commented on how brilliant you were. Personally I will never forgot the way you played 'Ho Hey' by the Lumineers as I waited for Sarah to come down the aisle - it brought tears to my eyes and is a moment I will never forget. Incredible musical talent and very professional and easy to deal with in terms of organisation/set-up. Can't recommend enough. Thank you.

"We just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to you both for joining us on Saturday and entertaining our guests so wonderfully. You are both so talented and we had loads of guests telling us how much they enjoyed your music! It was just perfect. Thank you too for the CD, that was a really thoughtful touch and will definitely be a firm favourite! All the best for the future and hope to see you on one of your normal tour dates very soon. Thank you again - you made our day amazing."

"Just to say a massive thank you for doing such a lovely set at Lucy's birthday. She loved the day and said it 'was everything she had hoped it would be' - which was fabulous! :) Honoured you came to our little party! We can see you playing Cambridge Folk Festival & Glastonbury. You've also got more than a few more fans after the party as I think everyone went away to buy your album."
