Lucy Farrell



‘Lucy Farrell began lulling the folk scene with her rich and honeyed voice when she left her Kent home to study the Folk and Traditional Music course in Newcastle in 2004. Since then, her exploration of traditional and contemporary song has touched the hearts of audiences well beyond the folk world, her beguiling and crystal clear singing style crafting stories with spellbinding skill. Her talent for songwriting is also gaining recognition; her melancholic and heartbreaking To The Boy, which she recorded with duo partner Jonny Kearney on The North Farm Sessions EP, featured in Ian Fitzgibbon’s 2011 film Death of a Superhero. With Kearney, Farrell has been nominated for two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. A versatile musician on fiddle, viola, and musical saw, Farrell is in popular demand as a session player, and can be seen and heard performing regularly in The Emily Portman Trio.’
Also part of the fabulous Furrow Collective; one of the best voices in contemporary folk music.
