Womenfolk returns with another triple bill featuring three of the UK’s of outstanding female singer-songwriters.
Since her self financed debut in 2000 Kathryn Williams has released 10 critically acclaimed studio albums that have quietly established her as one the truly distinctive voices of UK music.
She will be joined by two relative newcomers who’ve spent 2014 garnering critical acclaim and new fans:
Welsh harpist and singer Georgia Ruth, described as ‘one of British folk’s discoveries of the year” by The Guardian, won the 2013 Welsh Music Prize and was nominated for two 2014 BB Folk Awards.
Maz O’ Connor, who’s second album ‘Willowed Light’ was described by The Observer as ‘Folk album of the year thus far’, mixes traditional and self penned songs combining gorgeous melodies and exquisite vocals.
