Charlotte is eighteen years old and lives in Holmfirth, near Huddersfield. She is currently taking a gap year before attending the University of Birmingham to read Music, and is studying under Kenny Sturgeon. Although her greatest passion lies in music-making, she intends not to be a professional musician, but plans to campaign fervently for a child’s right to music education due to its vast array of benefits.
Owen Spafford discovered traditional folk music at the age of eight, and it has been at the centre of his musical life ever since. He has been a member of the National Youth Folk Ensemble for three years, and in 2018 was selected from the ensemble to play with Sam Sweeney at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting at Buckingham Palace.
