Collectively known as The Fox and The Owl, performing charming, original songs inspired by nature, environmental activism, love, art, and freedom. Led by the mellifluous harmonies of Lauren and Lu; their music is quirky, fun, and slightly eccentric yet at the same time subtle and chic. With an acid folk sound combining 60’s folk revival influence with trip hop, dub, and blues. Their eclectic sets are at times gentle and soothing and at other times it will bash you in the face with guitar solos, dubby bass, and colourful drums. Often danceable, always sing-along-able The Fox and The Owl have dazzled a wide range of audiences from festival crowds and music venues to community events. Performing on the Caravanserai stage at Camp Bestival, on the main stage at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival, at Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival, many of the UKs alternative festivals, as well as Greenpeace and Extinction Rebellion fundraisers and demonstrations.
Currently recording their self-produced album 'Taken by Water', out Spring 2020.
