Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage
Since 2016 Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage have been hypnotising audiences with their unique blend of Americana-tinged folk, that somehow remains quintessentially English.
“Dreamy reveries, softly warm vocals, stirring guitar arrangements, Sanders & Savage wield an elusive sort of magic” MOJO
Possessing a chemistry reminiscent of the great Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, onstage, the intertwining duo are playful & instinctive. Hannah Sanders has a voice of disarming purity that massages your senses. Ben Savage is a singular guitarist & a bubbling ferment of energy. Together, their harmonies & unique stage presence shimmer with an infectious enthusiasm & joy for the connection music offers
True originals, they have captivated audiences alongside Americana & folk luminaries such as Sarah Jarosz, Martin Simpson & Seth Lakeman.

“Beautiful songs… haunting dreamlike folk music” Songlines
The Ciderhouse Rebellion
Profound, epic, haunting & dramatic, The Ciderhouse Rebellion sees master musicians Adam Summerhayes (violin) & Murray Grainger (accordion) combine to produce incredible tapestries of sound.
The virtuoso duo create ‘music in the moment’, often springing from a single note, time signature or emotion. What emerges is uniquely magical. Their quest for the unexpected, transports the audience on a thrilling, swirling journey of sound.
A recent venture, the duo only began working together in 2020, but have already won Arts Council backing, featured on Folk on Foot, scored a BBC Radio 4 play & played major festivals across Europe.
‘Gorgeous stuff’ BBC Radio 3
“Two virtuoso musicians playing some of the most startling & original music you will ever encounter. Compelling, exciting and utterly original.” Phil Beer
