Nancy Kerr & The Sweet Visitor Band plus support Elliot Morris
Already a respected interpreter of traditional material, Nancy’s emergence as a writer of rare style has drawn comparisons to William Blake in her reawakening of a radical folk mythology as a backdrop for contemporary narratives about love and conflict, motherhood, migration, hardship and jubilation, and the tensions between rural and urban life.
Nancy is one of the most celebrated folk musicians of her generation, and has to date won 6 Folk Awards from BBC Radio 2: 2015 Folk Singer of the Year, Horizon Award 2000, Best Duo 2003, and again in 2011 with James Fagan, Best Group 2014 with The Full English, Best Album 2014 with The Full English.
Support: Elliott Morris
With hundreds of gigs behind him – and a coveted Danny Kyle Award from Celtic Connections 2013 – Elliott Morris has a formidable reputation as one of the hardest-working and most sought-after young artists on the acoustic scene.
The singer-songwriter, featured in Acoustic magazine as ‘The Next Big Thing’, taps the strings and beats the guitar’s body to create an intricate spectacle, together with an original and unique sound integral to his songs.
Promoted by the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS)
The performance starts at 7.30pm.
