Sunday 30 April | Doors 2 pm
Yorkshire born and bred, Fay Hield learned her craft as an interpreter of English song at an early age at the famous Bacca Pipes folk club in Keighley. While studying for a degree in folk and traditional music at Newcastle university she formed the harmony group The Witches of Elswick and subsequently went on to release a number solo albums for Topic Records. In 2013 an English Folk Dance and Song Society commission resulted in her forming the Full English to celebrate the launch of the EFDSS’s online digital archive. Her 2020 album Wrackline reached number 6 in the Folk charts and received widespread critical acclaim.
With a band featuring Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron, expect an afternoon of stunning musicianship and exquisite songs.
“Fay Hield is one of folk music’s most pre-eminent modern voices… her gift for unearthing colourful material and then delivering it with both swagger and soul is compelling.” Mojo
Angeline Morrison’s stunning 2022 album Sorrow Songs presents a set of songs of Black British experience rarely found in collected traditional repertoire.
“Abundant with meaning and feeling.” The Guardian, 4****
“The Sorrow Songs is a triumph.” Jon Wilks, tradfolk.co

“Crystal clear voices, great musicianship, and obviously a deep love of the tradition.” Mike Harding
