Folk Music Club Taunton at CICCIC Featuring David Harbottle & the Friendly Cats
David Harbottle and Freya Jonas are a folk duo based in the wilderness of Totnes. They paint pictures with their words and share stories of folk auld and new. They are hardworking songsmiths that place an emphasis on musical independence, originality and breathe new life into Traditional English Folk songs. They are often accompanied by The Friendly Cats who provide cello, mandolin, cajon and accordion accompaniments to the folk duo.
They have gigged extensively in Ireland, Italy and have appeared on Irish and Italian Radio & Television respectively. Following on from the e.p releases of ‘Strangers’, ‘Ferrara Girl’ and most recently ‘Dawn Breaks’ they are currently anticipating the release of their debut album ‘Cutthorpe Hill’.
‘Really upbeat and kinda a lot of fun. Another talented Totnes band.’ – BBC Introducing Devon
‘Just to demonstrate the versatility of this guy – I still can’t quite believe how good they are’ – FolkRise
‘Your music is great. The harmonies in “When We Wake in the Morning” are spot on and you can’t go wrong with the banjo. I really like your flavor, it’s very Sufjan Stevens with a little Belle and Sebastian.’ – RumbleFish
‘There is a fabulous sound about you. You come in cool as cucumber and once the music starts…well you’re very talented. There is great life in the two of you – you caught me by surprise and I’m very pleasantly surprised…I am blown away!’– Keith Finnegan, Galway Bay FM.
