Benhall Church, Dead Mans Lane, Benhall, IP17 1JL Samundham

Benhall based folk and roots duo, Honey & the Bear, are hosting their annual candlelit concert in this beautiful church in the middle of the Suffolk countryside. Expect flickering candles, smiling faces and lots of gorgeous music that will send shivers down your spine.

The multi instrumentalist pair, comprised of songwriters Jon Hart (guitar, bass, bazouki) and Lucy Hart (guitar, ukulele, bass, banjo, mandolin & percussion), will be performing tracks from their brand new album ‘Made in the Aker’ accompanied by fellow musicians Evan Carson and Toby Shaer (both of Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys). With a diverse range of sounds and textures, and rhythms that flow from the fast and furious to gentle ballads, their live performances are spirited and dynamic. Conjuring stories in song, they tell tales of Suffolk folklore, courage, passion and heartbreak. 

Special guests for the evening are local songwriting duo Bayfield Booth.
