Acoustic duo Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage will be bringing their single-microphone show to intimate UK venues starting April 4th in Sheffield. The run of dates coincide with the release of ‘Hidden Things’ the first in a trilogy of singles planned for 2019. A full list of dates and the video for ‘Hidden Things’ follows:

Hidden Things is the first in a trilogy of singles by Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage. Here, in a new video for the song - premiered by Folk Radio, and shot by Rob Bridge from Redwood Music Photography - the duo highlight the beauty in the tiny details of landscapes, whether urban or rural. 

After widely touring for the past few years 2019’s singles reflect the duo’s relationship to the spirit of place; all three songs were written and arranged in different counties whilst they were touring their critically acclaimed album Awake in 2018.

I was reading my friend Francesco Dimitri’s novel “Book of Hidden Things”. I was sitting on the coast of Stockholme’s Archipelago reading a novel set in Southern Italy and I was moved by the idea that landscapes hold dreams - love, mystery, loss… Dimitri’s book is about how stories become part of our connection to landscape. Like stories, songs can be a way of bringing the land’s dreams to life…
— Hannah Sanders

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 their music is unique.

Fleetingly, they may evoke a memory of Gram & Emmylou, Shirley & Davey, or Gillian & Dave but their 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.
