The ability to write songs that are both modern and ancient is a rare thing. The product of an arcane art of weaving in traditional influences so thoroughly that they become the warp and weft of fresh creations. The Black Feathers, made up of Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler, are two such talents. After a successful 3-month Summer tour in the US, the Gloucestershire duo have taken time away from touring to focus on writing new material. They are excited to be hitting the road in the UK, armed with fresh new songs and a new EP. “Once in a blue moon, the whole soars far above the sum of its parts. That’s what happens when The Black Feathers perform live” Black Mountain News, North Carolina Hughes and Chandler became aware of the magic between them while collaborating on several musical projects, becoming The Black Feathers and life partners in 2012. Americana, Folk and Acoustic Indie Rock sensibilities coexist comfortably in their musical world, with Hughes’ guitar work buoying the kind of harmonies often only heard in family bands.
