howdenjones ‘beautiful music in beautiful places’ Tour

Kate Howden and Paul Jones are singer-songwriters, based in The North West of England, who have that special magic that captivates the audience in a unique, intimate atmosphere. Their show is a family friendly mixture of songs, tunes and stories, that has the audience joining in, singing along, and laughing as they share their travelling experiences through their music and northern-tinged banter.

With powerful harmony, skilled musicianship and beautiful arrangements, they write all their own material and between them play, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and bodhran.

What The Audience Say

‘HowdenJones’ blend of beautiful original songs, Paul’s great musicianship and Kate’s transcendent singing would be reasons enough to recommend them, but add in their engaging, warm personalities and their gig at East Knoyle Village Hall was a very special evening’.
