Henry Webster

Fiddle, Harmonica

South East


Award-winning fiddle player Henry Webster is among the latest generation of folk musicians bringing a fresh perspective to the tradition. As well as performing solo, Henry is the fiddle player with The Will Pound Band, the genre-bending electronic-folk trio Tandem and duo Henry Webster & Dave Malkin. Henry is also a session fiddle player, recording fiddle and violin at studios all over London for pop, folk and classical artists, composers and arrangers.

Webster is not only known for his virtuosity and musicality, but also his use of electronics in live performance in both Tandem and The Will Pound Band. He has amassed a collection of pedals and effects any guitarist would die for (#hwmusicweb), which he uses on gigs to create a huge range of subtle, cinematic and symphonic sounds.

The latest venture for this young fiddle player however is an EP of solo fiddle tunes, an effort to give an accurate representation of some of the favourites from his virtuosic solo gigs, which are entirely acoustic, and must be seen to be believed.

‘He’s a treasure, one to look out for’ – BBC Radio 6 Music
‘One of the best fiddle players you’ll ever meet’ – Simon Care (Edward II, Tickled Pink)
‘Lyrical, highly inventive playing. Breathing new life into the English repertoire.’ – John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective)
