Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker - Fire & Fortune

Our latest Navigator track of the week comes from BBC Folk Award 2015 Best Duo winners, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker. Fire & Fortune is taken from the album of the same name which was released to critical acclaim back in 2013. The album features 12 tracks of carefully selected and re-imagined traditional songs and original compositions.

In a town full of songs and singers, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker give you the real thing. Both classically trained, their musical proficiency is beyond doubt. But this isn’t about technical accomplishment. This is about a song, first and foremost. Whether interpreting words centuries old, or singing her own authentic lyrics, Josienne’s jewel-like voice finds the nuance and melancholy in the simplest phrase and effortlessly sends it straight to your heart.
