Maz O’Connor is a young folk singer from Cumbria. She sings traditional songs, often unaccompanied and has also performed with Last Orders, previous winners of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.
She reached the final of the awards herself in 2009. She won the Fred Jordan Memorial Singing Competition at Bromyard Folk Festival, and the first TRAD2MAD competition run by Islington Folk Club.
Maz also writes her own songs, some of which can be found on youtube.
Maz’s brother Joe O’Connor, a fantastic melodeon player, accompanied her when she came to the Goose.
