Lucy Ward sings

Lucy Ward
hair colour not guaranteed
Lucy Ward is a 21-year old acoustic artist from Derby. She plays guitar and concertina, but says that her voice is her first instrument. Her sets are an eclectic mix of traditional and modern folk interpretations, interspersed with her own songs. She won the Horizon Award (Best Newcomer) in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2012. Despite my customary scepticism of awards, I have to acknowledge that this is quite an achievement. As a quick glance at the picture gallery on her website would show, her hair colour is subject to change at short notice.

Lucy is appearing at the Bothy Folk Club this Sunday, 7 April. It's at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. You can if you wish get tickets on-line here, the music begins at 8.00pm and the venue sells real ale from Thwaites (Wainwright).

What they are saying about Lucy:
  • "Brit folk's most vibrant and forthright new young talent" - Mojo.
  • Four stars " Bricks and Love ... the poignant new song I've heard this year." - Robin Denselow, the Guardian.
