Lockdown Jukebox #5 : Ninebarrow : Live Stream : 7.00pm, Saturday, 2 May
For a full-time professional folk act having to cancel four month's worth of gigs must have come as a blow, but Dorset-based Ninebarrow responded with the attention to detail and craft you would expect of musicians whose work is characterised by a limned intensity.
Replacing the lost tour dates with a digital equivalent, the duo's first live stream performance, two sets punctuated by a well-mannered interval, was held at the start of April. It drew plaudits both from its immediate audience and the review pages of The Morning Star.
Noted for their close harmonies, three albums into their recording career, Ninebarrow won Folking.com's 'Best Duo' in 2019. Their next virtual date is booked for 7pm, Saturday, 2 May - donations are welcome, but the event can be accessed for free; watch and pay what you can afford, the details are here.
