BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winners to appear in Romsey Festival

Categories: Press releases

Organisers of the Folklights concert for this year’s Romsey Festival are all smiles following the recent BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Winners of the best duo category for 2014, Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, are to headline a Festival concert on 17 July in the Lantern Theatre at Romsey’s Mountbatten School. The concert – booked before their awards success – is their only appearance in this part of the South.

Romsey residents Peter and Ali Campion, who booked Phillip and Hannah for the festival Folklights concert, say they are not surprised by the couple’s Folk Awards success.  “They have had rave reviews for their new album and are a great live act too,” said Peter. “We saw them last year and just knew we had to get them to Romsey.”

More information and ticketing details can be found on the Folklights event page on this website.
