A Thousand New Moons - Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage
Our LCM featured artists today are the wonderful Cambridge based Folk duo Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage. Hannah and Ben have recently released their latest album 'Awake' in May and our LCM #SongOfTheDay is their latest single the lovely 'A Thousand New Moons'. We have a full LCM review of the new album for you shortly and it is certainly worth exploring further.
Hannah and Ben are currently on tour in sunny Canada, so please go along and see them live if they gig near you. All the details are on their website.
Huddled round a single microphone, singing intimate duets with just mountain dulcimer, dobro and guitar Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage are an acoustic duo that look & sound classically timeless, yet feel refreshingly unique. Fleetingly, they may evoke a memory of Gram & Emmylou, Shirley & Davey, or Gillian & David but their warm distilling of musical influences from both sides of the Atlantic produces a refined sound that is decidedly their own.
Their unique unplugged presentation creates a widescreen, cinematic soundscape with open spaces and atmosphere, giving their beautifully pure vocals room to share the songs’ emotion and narrative. The material is as joyful and fun as it is intense, but the common factor is the duo’s warmth and confidence in each other; their natural ease and connection is clearly evident on the recorded music, and a genuine pleasure to witness on stage.
