Though that album was credited to Clarke alone, it served to introduce Walker as her collaborator, arranger, and accompanist. With 2012’s Homemade Heartache EP, the now evenly billed duo established themselves in the U.K. folk scene, drawing critical praise and earning the Isambard Folk Award and the FATEA Female Vocalist of the Year Award. Fire & Fortune, their début album, arrived in 2013, followed by more accolades for their mix of originals and traditional fare that also mixed in tones of Americana and classical.
