honey & the bear

Honey & The Bear are a roots inspired duo from Suffolk, England. Their softly interweaving vocal harmonies and foot stomping rhythms combine elements of Folk, Americana, Country, Blues and whatever else takes their fancy. The multi instrumentalist pair, comprised of songwriters Jon Hart and Lucy Sampson, have been writing together since early 2014, performing at well known festivals in the East of England such as Maverick, Ely Folk and FolkEast. In early 2016 they completed their first tour of Germany, released their debut EP ‘About Time’ and also their follow up EP ‘About Time Too’.

Buy Honey & The Bears new EP ‘About Time Too’ £5.00 plus £1.50 postage and packaging.
