Lucy Farrell Gig at the Greenhouses

September 28 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

£7 – £10

A rare gig from Lucy Farrell anticipated with great excitement!

With the Furrow Collective, Lucy won Best Group in the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. This year Lucy is embarking on a solo career something so many have been hoping for, since first hearing her exquisite renditions of traditional ballads and quietly moving original songs.

Recently, Lucy played with Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band’s Big Machine album and tour, and did shows with the Emily Portman Trio with whom she’s sung, sawed and played viola on many occasions.

An inveterate collaborator, the news that Lucy is to take centre stage in her own right comes as a welcome surprise to all those who’ve been entranced by her haunting and quintessentially English voice, subtle and instinctive musicianship and her ability to connect emotionally with an audience.

Lucy Farrell first enchanted fans of traditional music when she began performing as a duo with fellow Newcastle Folk Degree graduate Jonny Kearney. Invited to become the regular opening act for The Unthanks, Lucy & Jonny’s blend of wry and lovelorn tales with exquisite interpretations of English, Scottish and American ballads saw them frequently outselling the headline act at the CD stall.

As well as Lucy’s fruitful partnership with Emily Portman and the award winning harpist and singer Rachel Newton, she has also written, performed and recorded with numerous bands and projects including Dark Northumbrian, Gluepot, a star-studded live tribute to Norma Waterson, and also formed her own group Ogres. Although she’s rejected the conventional career path, Lucy has become one of the most in demand musicians and vocalists on the young folk scene.

Signed to the impressively visionary Hudson Records, Lucy Farrell has returned to the traditional folk songs that have remained at the heart of everything she’s done. These are the ballads that inspire her own compositions, but in their own handed-down beauty and strangeness tell fantastical stories beyond our imaginations.

Gates open 4pm to give an opportunity to see the gardens and get home made and grown food and drink.

Lucy’s first set will be 4.30pm to 5.15pm. Interval 5.15pm to 5.45pm. Second set 5.45pm to about 6.15pm.

We put on our Gigs at the Greenhouses to let people hear brilliant music, enjoy our lovely gardens and to raise money so that the community can benefit from BPCG 7 days a week.
