Lucy Ward

28 October 2011

Lucy WardLucy is a young  acoustic artist from Derby. She plays guitar but considers voice to be her first instrument and has been performing regularly since she was 14. She is now a professional and consummate performer who wows her audience with her genuine and sparkling personality and her stunning voice.

Lucy’s sets are an eclectic mix of traditional and modern folk interpretations, interspersed with her own songs. She has the ability to still an audience with the strength and purity of her voice, which she uses to great effect on the unaccompanied songs in her set. There is a natural and easy sound to her music that is brought to life by her expressive performance and breath-taking delivery.

After reaching the Finals of the BBC Young Folk Musician Awards in 2009, Lucy sang in front of 900 people at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. Subsequently she appeared at many festivals and also supported artists of the calibre of Jim Moray, Tams & Coope, Dave Swarbrick and Seth Lakeman.

Her song writing is developing and she has recently been involved in the Mills and Chimneys Project, working with other musicians to to write and record new songs about her native Derbyshire.
