Our Song of the Day is from this years Best Duo winners at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin. The track Silbury Hill is from their album Mynd which featured on FRUK as an Album of the Month in September last year.
The opener Silbury Hill weaves a mystical time slip into a journey across Salisbury Plain to London, inspired by the ancient barrow lands. It combines all of their strengths demonstrating that chemistry as their multi instrumental skills and voices meld beautifully. Phillip’s Dobro and lap steel seem to float with Hannah’s viola, as each instrument occupies a distinct space, creating a dreamy haze and their voices work in harmony.
