Lucy Ward is an impressive, original songwriter whose unique delivery and breath-taking voice has enchanted audiences the world over. Her music never fails to get to the heart of the human condition with her expressive, unflinching writing style and warm personality that radiates from the stage.
Having come up through the folk tradition, Ward’s music has a sense of rooted belonging. She is BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner and is the youngest person ever to be nominated for the prestigious BBC Folk Singer of the Year.
Named ‘Brit-folks most forthright new young talent’ by MOJO and ‘inspiring’ by Billy Bragg, it’s easy to see why this young singer songwriter is in such demand.
“The force of her engaging personality, her forthright performances a broad array of material and the apparently bottomless levels of courage and cheerfulness help her win over audiences.”
Colin Irwin Froots Magazine
“She’s both a breath of fresh air and a veritable whirlwind all at the same time”
“Lucy is a lovely young talent with a breath-taking presence on stage. Her totally unpretentious outlook and her warmth melts the hearts of audiences wherever she performs. Her disarming personality, strong, pitch perfect delivery and the maturity of her songs can reduce an audience to tears, but a Lucy Ward set will always send you away feeling uplifted. Lucy has that extra something that will see her reach the top echelon in the folk world.”
Shrewsbury Folk Festival
“Just got back from a Lucy Ward gig – TOTALLY AMAZING – If you haven’t seen her then my advice is to do so! One of the best gigs I’ve been to in a long time.”
