On the heels of the largely sold out Static in the Wires tour, this dynamic transatlantic duo take to the road in 2018 for the Feet Don’t Fail Me tour, which begins with Celtic Connections in Glasgow and spans the majority of the UK, before concluding at the glorious Union Chapel in London.
Always engaging, though never predictable, these “musicians at the top of their game”(Music Riot) seek to push the boundaries of blues, folk and American roots music. Original compositions, harmony vocals, constant improvisation and good-humoured banter are the cornerstones of their live show. 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 since the 1960’s. From an early age Daniel performed in Appalachian and Bluegrass bands before studying double bass at East Tennessee University.
Their most recent album, Static in the Wires, was recorded in Nashville and follows their 2015 debut Live at Southern Ground. A “Spellbinding 50 minutes”, as The Observer put it. The album features 14-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas along with Derek Mixon (Chris Stapleton) and Micah Hulsher (Alabama Shakes, Margo Price).

More praise for Martin Harley and Daniel Kimbro
““Static in the Wires” is a satisfying proposition for both blues and folk crowds and will keep both hyped to catch the nearest live show” Americana-UK
“…a really fine slice of acoustic blues…Together they have a similar sort of musical telepathy to that of the late John Martyn with the great Danny Thompson.” Blabber ‘n’ Smoke
“…cementing his reputation as one of its finest exponents…this is how acoustic roots should be heard, on a record that allows Harley’s indisputable talent and spirit to shine through. Fine stuff.” The Blues magazine
“…one of the UK’s finest contemporary roots musicians. Working with Jerry Douglas bassist Daniel Kimbro seems to have distilled Harley’s strengths” Total Guitar
