Dynamic duo Martin Harley and Daniel Kimbro are coming to Norwich on their ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me’ tour to headline Norwich Arts Centre on February 20.

On the heels of the largely sold out ‘Static in the Wires’ tour, they are on the road again with their new tour which began at Celtic Connections in Glasgow and spans the majority of the UK before concluding at Union Chapel in London.

The pair seek to push the boundaries of blues, folk and American roots music with their own original compositions, harmony vocals and constant improvisation which are the cornerstones of their live shows.

Both together and apart Martin and Daniel frequent the world’s stages, earning a combined experience that includes performances at Glastonbury, the Royal Albert Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, New Orleans Jazz Fest, the Blue Note Tokyo, the Transatlantic Sessions, Cognac Blues festival, and the Cayamo Cruise, among many others.

Martin grew up in South East London heavily influenced by the decades of blues music synonymous with the area. Total Guitar, a UK based music magazine, rated him at #16 in their best acoustic guitarists in the world 2017.

From an early age Daniel performed in Appalachian and Bluegrass bands throughout East Tennessee before studying Double Bass at the local university. He’s a member of the Grammy nominated Jerry Douglas band and recently toured with the Transatlantic Sessions.

Their most recent album as a duo, ‘Static in the Wires’, was recorded in Nashville and follows their 2015 debut ‘Live at Southern Ground’, an album that features 14-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas along with Derek Mixon (Chris Stapleton) and Micah Hulscher (Alabama Shakes, Margo Price).

Tickets for the Norwich show are available from the Norwich Arts Centre website for £15.50 advance.
