Kate and Paul return to Combe St Nicholas! They are both singer-songwriters, based in The North West of England, who have that special magic that captivates the audience in a unique,intimate atmosphere. Stripped back, gritty, often poignant, sometimes humorous, observations that reflect life’s ups and downs, their show is a family friendly mixture of songs, tunes andstories that has the audience joining in, singing along, and laughing as they share their travelling experiences through their music and northern-tinged banter. They celebrate England in allits guises good and bad, particularly rural village life, including nature and the seasons.
With powerful harmony, skilled musicianship and beautiful arrangements, they write all their own material and between them play, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and bodhran.
Kate and Paul continue travelling all over the country playing at Village Halls Churches and Community Venues. In the past 5 years they created their ‘beautiful music in beautiful places’ Tour, and have been sharing their music and stories, often meeting friendly and fascinating people and visiting some wonderful, unusual venues in sometimes remote and always beautiful areas along the way. The 2016 Tour is called 'No Halls Barred', so whether your venue is a Nissan Hut, a Methodist Chapel or a Reading Room howdenjones' versatility will adapt to any space. As contemporary musicians they enjoy exploring the acoustic sound of each unique venue and use no effects. Their show has been described as, ‘relaxed and enchanting’ and ‘an absolute delight’, ‘their joy, talent and good humour were infectious’. ‘music for all ages’.
