"What a beautiful, beautiful voice she has, just gorgeous” - Eve Blair, BBC Radio Ulster “Barfoot’s voice, deft guitar-work and her perceptive songs blend magically to create an album to curl up with and be thankful for” - Jackie Hayden, Music Writer, Hot Press Singer songwriter and Alt Folk artist Lewis Barfoot has announced her headline Irish and UK tour to celebrate the release of her debut album Glenaphuca. The tour will include dates in Cork, London, Brighton, Frome and Stroud. With a scattering of intimate house concerts along the way. Featuring popular singles White Dress, Sweet Dreams, Fisherman as heard on RTE Radio 1, Raidio na Gaeltacht, and across BBC Radio. Glenaphuca is a folk prayer to the ancestors, an album full of evocative, autobiographic- al original compositions and reinventions of traditional songs from Ireland and the UK. Poignant and profound, melancholic and beautiful, Lewis muses upon life, death, loss and the silenced feminine voice with the deepest grace. In White Dress, an elegiac lament for Lewis’s mother, she ponders life after death, with The Fox and Twa Corbies she honours the natural cycles of death in nature and in Sweet Dreams she celebrates a life that has passed. Lewis is a timeless and gifted storyteller who captivates listeners with her fearless lyrics and gorgeous otherworldly voice. Frequently compared to the likes of Kate Rusby, Sandy Denny, Maíre Brennan, a young Joni Mitchell and Julie Fowlis.
