Fay Hield is a folk singer who seems to have been born knowing how to carry a tune but with the rarer gift of knowing how to go straight to the heart of a song.
Fay’s first two solo albums, Looking Glass (2010) and Orfeo (2012), were released by prestigious folk label Topic Records.
They won Fay many accolades as well as a nomination for the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Fay’s choice of material and the delivery of it, reflect a rare sensitivity and appreciation of the tradition while remaining naturalistic and highly distinctive.
As part of the The Hurricane Party, Fay has played with Sam Sweeney, Rob Harbron, Andy Cutting, Roger Wilson, Ben Nicholls and Toby Kearney.
She is making a welcome return to the circuit with her first gig at Bamford’s Moore Hall in the Hope Valley, on January 18.
