Never miss another 'Blair Dunlop' show
Hitchin Folk Club: Blair Dunlop + Lucy Ward
Blair Dunlop, the award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, released two EPs in his teens and became a regular at folk festivals in both Britain and abroad. His debut album ‘Blight & Blossom’ established him as an artist with a promising career ahead and led to him receiving both critical acclaim and the Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
His follow up album, 2014’s ‘House of Jacks’, lived up to that promise and cemented his place as one of Britain’s most exciting talents to come from the folk scene. The Guardian stated that the album proves Blair is ‘an increasingly adventurous songwriter’, Uncut reviewed it as ‘thoughtful and exploratory’, The Independent on Sunday described it as ‘fluent, lamentory and accomplished’ and Q Magazine simply wrote that House of Jacks is ‘an exciting glimpse of where traditional folk might go’.

Fresh from winning the Horizon Award at the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Lucy can sing the birds off the trees, and compliments flow such as from Mike Harding ".. one of the best things I have heard in years", and from Mojo magazine ".. Brit folk's most vibrant and forthright new young talent.."
Lucy is a 21 year old from Derby, and she plays guitar and concertina but considers her voice to be her first instrument. There is a natural and easy sound to her music that is brought to life by expressive performance, breath-taking delivery and Lucy's own brand of banter and crowd participation. She has the ability to still an audience with the strength and purity of her voice, and she is developing into a fine songwriter and a consummate performer who wows her audience with not just her stunning voice but also her genuine and sparkling personality.
