Headliners

Nerina Pallot

Nerina Pallot appearing at this event

Ivor Novello and Brit Award-nominee Nerina Pallot is a gifted singer/songwriter who writes soulful lyrical songs woven with passionate sentiments. Driven by an obsessive love of music, she manages to create material that has a life all of its own. In the words of Times Online, she has an 'astonishingly versatile voice' and a 'knack for alchemising half-focused images into phrases that haunt as long as her opulent tunes echo in the head'.
