Having reached ‘a certain age’ Leon Hunt and Jason Titley can now say they’ve been friends and musical collaborators for most of their lives.

This musical partnership started way back in the early nineties, and led to the formation of the hugely popular ‘progressive’ bluegrass outfit, Daily Planet. Numerous projects and years later, they’re back as a duo, making the very most of the musical chemistry they always had but with the addition of decades of experience.

An evening in the company of Leon and Jason is a rare treat, more a musical conversation than a rigid performance. Playing guitar, banjo, gourd banjo, and percussion, these old friends will most likely confound any pre conceived ideas you may be harbouring as to what these instruments can (and should) do. As well as leaning heavily on traditional music from the US and The British Isles, their own compositions take on musical references from just about everywhere else.
