The Broads sing traditional songs from the British Isles and America, usually unaccompanied.
They are drawn to songs that tell a story, and the people at the centre of those stories.
From dark tales of murder and seduction, to ballads of love and hope, the Broads take these stories and reimagine them, their four-part harmonies bringing life back to long quiet words. The stories of women and their lives are a constant source of inspiration, and the Broads enjoy exploring this female side to the folk world.
The Norfolk Broads
The Norfolk Broads are a four-piece female ensemble who enjoy singing low-pitched folk songs about love, despair and dastardly boyfriends. They bonded over maritime work songs and failed romances in the alto section of the Trad Academy Sea Shanty Choir, deciding to form a girl-group during a long car ride to Cornwall in 2014. Since then, they have performed their spirited harmonies at festivals and venues in London and further afield.
