Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker (Great Britain)

One of the most remarkable folk duos, awarded and respected

Josienne and Ben won the BBC Folk Awards and their album was successful as the best album of the world in the magazine fRoots. So, is it a traditional English folk or not?  

Josienne and Ben don’t have traditional folk roots, they both studied classical music, but they were both lucky when they met folk music: Josienn met Sandy Denny and Ben learnt his extraordinary guitar style from Bert Jansch. So that they can set new standards of English folk, full of freedom, but connected with traditions.
