“Very entertaining! Great humour and good music!” – Discovery Review, The Beggars Fair 2018

Inspired by traditional and contemporary folk music, Antoine & Owena create their own original blend of folk music that provides a feast for the ears, the heart and the feet. Combining original material with their own take on some traditional songs, this Wiltshire-based duo delivers an eclectic mix of songs and tunes which enthuse and entertain. With Owena on the fiddle, and Antoine on guitar and bouzouki, together with the use of vocal harmonies, they captivate their audiences with their variety, showmanship, and good humour.

As a duo, Antoine & Owena have had the pleasure of playing support slots for many of their folk heroes, including Martin & Eliza Carthy, Dave Pegg of Fairport Convention, and Reg Meuross. Since winning the Purbeck Rising Competition at Purbeck Folk Festival in 2017 they have had considerable success on the folk festival circuit and have been seen regularly at many of the country’s prominent folk and music festivals.
