Antoine & Owena - CANCELLED
Antoine & Owena, inspired by traditional and contemporary folk music, create their own original blend of folk music that provides a feast for the ears, the heart and the feet.
Combining original material with their own take on some traditional songs, this Wiltshire-based duo of multi-instrumentalists delivers an eclectic mix of songs and tunes which enthuse and entertain.
They won the Purbeck Valley Folk Festival 'Purbeck Rising' Competition in 2017 and have been going from strength to strength since then, with regular festival performances, support slots for the likes of Martin and Eliza Carthy, and Fairport Convention's Dave Pegg.
They are set to release their second studio album in 2020 and recently released the first single, Botany Bay, which reached number 1 in the Amazon Folk Best Sellers Chart and has had extensive radio play on both local, national, and online radio stations. The duo continue to perform on the folk festival and club circuit and will be touring in 2020 to promote their new album
