Ange HardySupport: TBC
Celebrated by The Telegraph as “one of Britain’s top folk musicians” for her five star 2014 album “The Lament of The Black Sheep” Ange Hardy has grabbed the attention of the traditional folk music world (a feat which saw her nominated at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and winning 4 consecutive FATEA awards) by writing new material and embracing modern technologies whilst maintaining a traditional feel.
Ange is currently touring with three different guitars, a 27-string Salvi Harp, a bag of low whistles, a 16" floor drum, a tambourine and a shruti box. Combined with her innovative use of live looping for vocal harmonies she’s one of the most diverse, entertaining and spellbinding solo-artists you're likely to encounter.

"Album's like Ange Hardy's 'The Lament Of The Black Sheep' are a genuinely once in a blue moon album ... not only is she an incredible vocalist, she is also damned fine with the pen, the result is songs that could move a statue"
- Neil King FATEA Magazine
- Mike Norris, EFDSS Classic Folk
"It sounds like a song that’s been around for a hundred years or more. It’s a really neat trick to write songs that sound almost traditional!"

- Bright Young Folk
“Extremely well sung and extremely attractively presented (nay, a work of art): It’s a really special record!”
