After getting her first guitar at the age of 14, Lucy ventured into acoustic clubs, it was there that she first heard the traditional music that she now loves. Captured by the lyrics and stories of traditional song Lucy delved further into the world of folk music, visiting clubs and sessions up and down the country before getting booked to play gigs in her own right. In 2009 Lucy reached the final of the BBC young folk award and she hasn’t looked back since!

After winning the horizon award for best newcomer at the 2012 BBC radio 2 folk awards, Lucy’s career has gone from strength to strength establishing her as one of the hottest performers on the UK folk scene, pulling a full capacity audience for her Cambridge folk festival debut.

In 2013 it was announced that she had been nominated for the acclaimed “folk singer of the year” at the 2014 BBC radio 2 folk awards, making Lucy one of the youngest people ever to be nominated for this most prestigious award.

 

As well as her own music Lucy has written for both film, theatre and has been involved with many, varied projects.
