Breakthrough psyche-folk duo Bird to Beast – who have been enjoying plenty of radio play in the last few weeks – were invited into the studio for an interview on BBC 6 Music’s Radcliffe & Maconie’s daytime show on Monday 10th March.
It was all part of the BBC’s 6 Music Recommends day, and the band had a great chat with Mark and Stuart about Sam and Hannah’s background, how they met, and the time when Hannah ate bacon butties at Will and Kate’s royal wedding party with Ellie Goulding!
