Since emerging in 2016, Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage have been defying all conventions of style, genre and compartmentalisation. A touch of ‘Americana’, yet quintessentially English. Traditional, yet contemporary, with their individual writing style. Playful and instinctive, they constantly do the unexpected; yet they do it with such panache and natural chemistry it makes perfect sense.
Hannah Sanders has an alluring mystique and a voice of disarming purity that massages your senses. Ben Savage is a bubbling ferment of energy and infectious enthusiasm, seemingly able to play any instrument you put in front of him with grace and favour.
They have recorded two studio albums to date, Before the Sun (2016) and Awake (2018) and have captivated audiences at shows and on festival stages alongside Americana and folk luminaries such as Sarah Jarosz, Martin Simpson, Seth Lakeman and Oh Susanna.
They are true originals, that’s all there is to it. Distinctive. Innovative. Ground-breaking. Unique.
Hannah & Ben release a new album Ink of the Rosy Morning on Topic Records in early 2022.

“This is folk music for everyone – a master-class in proficiency, an exercise in individuality and a declaration of love of the folk tradition from both sides of the Atlantic” - Spiral Earth
“Dreamy reveries, softly warm vocals, stirring guitar arrangements –
Sanders & Savage wield an elusive sort of magic” - MOJO
“Beautiful- just magical, dreamy and gorgeous” - BBC Radio 3 InTune
“Sanders has a voice of such sparkling clarity that soars above and dips around Savage’s dobro and their harmonies are exquisite.” - No Depression
“Their performance is perfectly honed, faultlessly presented and demonstrates that they are clearly a match made in musical heaven. The songs are filled with messages of hope and promise, all delivered in a stripped down sound, which takes you on a journey into the minds of this duo… The dynamic between the duo is electric and their eclectic mix of music is refreshing, we were treated to new tracks from their album as well as their own favourites.” - The Atkinson
