Cheshire born folk singer Molly Evans has enjoyed a fascination with traditional song and the oral tradition from an early age, having been immersed in stories belonging to the people and being passed from generation to generation through sound as well as the written word.
After reaching the final of the New Roots competition in 2015, Molly has gone on to perform at festivals and folk clubs around the UK, including Sidmouth, Warwick, Bromyard, Shepley, Towersey and Shrewsbury.
Her latest project, ’Deep Time and Narrow Space’, is a collection of original songs based on the traditional folklore work of Cheshire writer Alan Garner.
In this unique exploration of words and music, Molly has adapted and recorded new settings of Garner’s collected tales, stories and poems into songs texturally and melodically inspired by the English folk song tradition.
