A young British singer-songwriter from Derby, Lucy Ward performs traditional English folk songs as well as her own material, with a voice described as expressive and powerful, she has a breath-taking stage presence and a disarming personality.
She plays guitar, ukulele and concertina but considers her voice to be her first instrument.
After getting her first guitar at the age of 14, Lucy ventured into acoustic clubs, it was there that she first heard the traditional music that she now loves. Captured by the lyrics and stories of traditional song Lucy delved further into the world of folk music, visiting clubs and sessions up and down the country before getting booked to play gigs in her own right. In 2009 Lucy reached the final of the BBC Young Folk Award and she hasn’t looked back since. In 2014 she was nominated for the “Folk Singer of the Year” award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Lucy has written for both film and theatre.
