Lucy Ward headlines the third in our series of live/online hybrid concerts
We are thrilled to reveal that the guest for the third in our series of live/online hybrid concerts will be the fantastic Lucy Ward.
Named "Brit-Folk’s most vibrant and forthright new young talent" by MOJO, "impressive and original" by The Guardian and "inspiring" by Billy Bragg, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winner Lucy is a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter and folk musician. Her songs are a sweet mixture of evocative imagery and quiet, involving beauty; passion, protest and tradition all rolled into one. Her voice is breathtaking; this captivating and powerful performer and has a unique ability to inhabit the very heart of every song.
As summed up by Shrewsbury Folk Festival, "Lucy is a breath taking presence on stage. Her unpretentious outlook and warmth melts the hearts of audiences. Her disarming personality, pitch perfect delivery and the maturity of her songs can reduce an audience to tears, but a Lucy Ward set will always send you away feeling uplifted."
It will be Lucy’s third appearance at Downend Folk Club, having first played solo at Frenchay Village Hall in March 2015, before returning a couple of years ago with a full band in tow, this time at Downend School. We are thrilled that Lucy has agreed to come all the way from her Derby home to perform in these strange times!
