The Fiddle Girls: Eliza Carthy + Bella Hardy + Lucy Farrell

"The word "Laylam" means "chorus": a good reason to sing together in any setting. Often relating to birds...which we are. Join in then." Eliza Carthy
New album "Laylam" out on HemHem Records, January 2013."

Bella is one of the finest young folk acts around, singing unaccompanied ballads, or entwining her hypnotic voice with her own fiddle accompaniment to breathtaking effect. Three times nominated in the BBC Folk Awards, she has a voice marked as '...mesmerising' and '...faultless'.
Her songs touch on both the fantastical, storytelling elements of Kate Bush and the lovelorn songwriting craft of Carole King, ranging in subject matter from fairytales to English working class history via childhood nostalgia, myths, murder and the human condition.
'Stunning... there is an aura of sophistication that will win over listeners who never
set foot in a folk club' (The Sunday Times).
