Music Programme 2019
! Hudson Taylor – Schools Concert – Friday at 12.00 noon
The brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor lead a busy life, touring the world, still winning new fans. Tønder Festival’s audiences know Hudson Taylor really well, as they have played at the festival and Hagges Music Pub many times. The duo formed in 2011, and their debut EP Battles appeared in 2012, around the same time as they first came to Tønder Festival. The EP topped the Irish hit parade, and Hudson Taylor were soon supporting names like Jake Bugg and even The Rolling Stones. The two brothers apply their charm and superb vocal harmonies to folk, roots and pop, and several critics have compared the duo’s singing to Simon & Garfunkel. Hudson Taylor grew up in south Dublin, and their Irish origins cannot be denied. In the autumn of 2018 the album Bear Creek to Dame Street appeared. Earlier in 2018, Hudson Taylor toured USA with their countryman Hozier.
