Patchwork Skies are an acoustic duo comprising of Singer and Guitarist Emma Ewins, and Singer, Guitarist, Flautist Charlie Limm. They met back in 2011 as Christmas Elves at Hamleys toyshop and formed a firm friendship and shared love of music. Patchwork Skies took full form in 2013 in London and have since been writing and performing their original music, interjected by the occasional cover, largely taking influence from folk and country genres.
The duo went from strength to strength and had their first radio broadcast on BBC Radio Introducing Norfolk with the song 'Through the Dark.' They won their slot playing at their first festival The Healing Weekend in July 2016 and since playing at the fantastic Bromsgrove Folk Club, the pair secured their place on the main stage at Bromsgrove Folk Festival in 2017 and again in 2019. They have also played at prestigious venues around London such as The Bedford, Acklam Village, Roadhouse, The Islington, Battersea Arts Centre and many more as well as branching out to surrounding parts of London and more rural parts of the country.
Patchwork Skies have also written music for an original theatre production that the girls wrote and produced in September 2015. The River Spirit was an original folk story that encorporated story telling through folk music.
Their first ever EP entitled Go Outside was recorded by Luke Fairhead in his living room studio, and mixed by Will Vaughan. It also features original artwork designed and produced by Somerset artist Stella Limm and edited by Jack Anthony Ewins. It was funded and produced by the duo and they are incredibly proud of the result and grateful to all involved. You can download and listen to the EP on Spotify below or on I-tunes and soundcloud.
