Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker

26 November 2010

Josienne Clarke and Ben WalkerJosienne Clark and Ben Walker  were previously known as Mondesir. They supported The Martin Simpson Trio when they appeared at the Goose in 2010.

Josienne’s music largely languishes in folk chanson, but occasionally dips a toe into blues shoes.

A blend of skilful songwriting distilled through folk, bluegrass and traditional influences to create expansive works of skill and beauty, executed with dexterity and charisma.

Josienne’s songwriting and performing cohort is Ben Walker on both steel and nylon string acoustic guitar, and mandolin.

Influenced by the likes of Bert Jansch, Pierre Bensusan, Martin Simpson and Richard Thompson, his playing adds an additional dimension to her already sculpted sound.
