Honey & The Bear | Christina Alden and Alex Patterson @ John Peel Centre

Please note a change to the advertised billing – Christina Alden and Alex Patterson will now be performing a duo for this performance.

Joining forces for an evening to showcase the best in contemporary Folk, Christina Alden and Alex Patterson and Honey & The Bear are proud to bring you their own twists on the tradition, storytelling woven in to song and harmonies abound in a magical night to remember.

Honey & The Bear are a roots-inspired duo from the Suffolk Coast. Their softly interweaving vocal harmonies and foot stomping rhythms combine elements of Folk & Americana. The multi instrumentalist pair, comprised of songwriters Jon Hart and Lucy Hart, include Guitar, Banjo, Ukelele Mandolin and Double Bass and have been writing & performing together up & down the UK since early 2014.

“Accomplished, easy-on-the-ear acoustic folk-pop for grown-ups” – fRoots Magazine

“Beautiful harmonies and charisma from both aside, they were very obviously enjoying each other’s company which enhanced the atmosphere of the evening … Jon and Lucy spoke, played and sang with ease making it all look effortless … Their lyrics were significant without being contrived, and were enhanced by their storytelling and communication with the audience in between numbers.”



Christina Alden and Alex Patterson are songwriters and multi-instrumentalists from Norwich. They have been playing and singing together for the last seven years and have toured extensively in the UK and Europe – including a twenty three date tour with Show Of Hands, a show at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for Celtic Connections and main stage performances at some of the UK’s most prestigious folk festivals.
