Hannah Sanders & Liz Simmons

(www.hannahandliz.com)

At: Grayshott Village Hall, Headley Road GRAYSHOTT, Nr. Hindhead, Surrey GU26 6TZ

Grayshott has a proud record of being ahead of the curve and spotting potential talent in performers. We believe we've discovered a new Anglo/American duo who harmonise beautifully and who we think are going to receive wider acclaim. 

Hannah Sanders was brought up in Norfolk and from a young age travelled the country performing with her family Folk band The Dunns. She has been exposed to the Folk tradition whilst absorbing contemporary Folk ifluences. She has a beautiful singing voice and plays Guitar and Baritone Dulcimer.

Meanwhile Liz Simmons was growing up on the other side of the pond in Boston, U.S.A. She too grew up with strong family musical influences. She has honed her singing and playing talents with several bands and now destiny has brought Hannah and Liz together to form this wonderfully talented duo.

"Cleverly wrought......the expressive interplay of their voices and guitar arrangements is exemplary"  Shire Folk Magazine

 

Support: The Black Feathers

A likeable duo with great voices and instumental skills, who are returning to win over more fans. Ray and Sian are based in Cirencester and came to support The Churchfitters at Grayshott back in February 2012. Since then, I've been tracking their progress and I know they are starting to gain the recognition they deserve. We are delighted to welcome them back to Grayshott

 

Tickets: Adults £12, Children under 16, £6
