Jennie Higgins is a traditional folk singer and historian known for her acappella traditional arrangements of folk songs that tell women’s stories.
Since she was just five years old Jennie has been singing in folk clubs across the West Country and dancing as part of a lakeland clog troupe. The folk arts run through her veins and the traditions of the English folk scene is highly important to her both musically and academically.
Sam Browse is a London (formerly Sheffield) -based folk singer, performing songs about working class struggle and queer experience.
Drawing on a folk canon of rakish werewolves, gender-fluid drummers, and inappropriately amorous kings – alongside sounds sampled from Soho to the RVT – his latest EP, Wanton Will, is a love letter to queer London. A – sort of? – newcomer to the capital’s folk music scene, we hope you enjoy him as much as we do.
Combining traditional elements with contemporary tunes from across the UK and into mainland Europe, Lauren Eva Ward’s music intertwines in ways that other multi-instrumentalists will appreciate. Expect flute-driven melodies.
“Lauren is a flautist who can really interpret tunes, both traditional and modern, to give a really fresh sound with a huge lift in their music” Tony Birch
