Lucy Ward is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Derby, who 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!
As usual, support will come in the form of Kardomah 94’s very popular ‘performer’s circle’ with three excellent local acts, each taking it in turns to perform one number at a time.
