Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler of The Black Feathers

The Black Feathers (Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler) is a Gloucestershire, UK-based husband and wife folk and roots music duo who have drawn comparisons to Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings and The Civil Wars. Their original songs weave in traditional influences so thoroughly that they become the warp and weft of fresh creations, while their on-stage chemistry is riveting.  Americana, folk, and acoustic indie rock sensibilities coexist comfortably in their musical world, with Hughes’ guitar work buoying the kind of harmonies often only heard in family bands.


Together as both as a musical duo and life partners since 2012, The Black Feathers have amassed a loyal fan base on the other side of the pond and a growing one here. The duo has performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival and AmericanaFest and secured coveted official showcases at the 2023 Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City and those of two of its regional affiliates.  The Black Feathers previously performed an online Hard Luck Café concert in June 2021.
