Morris & Watson

Saturday 17th February 2024

Morris & Watson

Morris & Watson have created a unique sonic landscape that blends both traditional and original material. Split equally between fiddle tunes and songs, their sound is unique utilising spatial, octave and digital FX to transform their acoustic instruments and amplify them into exciting new territory. Despite there only being two musicians on stage they capture the entire frequency spectrum, driving their songs and tunes directly into the hearts of their audiences.

Both previously members of the band Folkus, Lizzie and Dan continued to make music together while studying at Leeds College of Music. In 2015 they graduated and hit the road, releasing their debut EP 'Seeing Through Smoke'. They continued to tour the UK throughout the following years, with notable highlights including performances at Glastonbury and Bearded Theory festivals in 2019. That year also saw the release of their debut album 'Live at the Old Co-Op'.

While the music of Morris & Watson has always been the truest expression of Lizzie and Dan, they have both been committed to other projects since their formation, leaving Morris & Watson as a side project for most of its existence. 2024 sees Morris & Watson brought to the forefront of their musical lives and they are very excited to hit the road harder than ever before. The new year will bring a fresh start for one of the most exciting folk projects on the contemporary scene today.
