Influential singer-violinist Nancy Kerr launches her eagerly anticipated solo debut, Sweet Visitor.
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, migration, hardship and jubilation, and the tensions between rural and urban life.
Nancy’s 2014 gets off to a great start with two BBC Radio 2 Folk Award wins as part of EFDSS’ Full English and a nomination as part of The Melrose Quartet.
Nancy is joined on stage by James Fagan (Cara Dillon, The James Bros, and co-winner with Nancy of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo) Tom Wright (Albion band, Park Bench Social Club, Eliza Carthy), Tim Yates (Blackbeard’s Tea Party, Albion Band) and Rowan Rheingans (Lady Maisery).
“A songwriter steeped in the tradition, but casting it anew.”Songlines
