Lucy Farrell

Lucy Farrell is quietly building her solo career with her exquisite renditions of traditional ballads and quietly moving original songs. As one fourth of The Furrow Collective, Lucy is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner in the Best Group category following the release of the band’s widely acclaimed Wild Hog LP in 2017.

As a soloist, accompanying herself on tenor guitar, viola or shruti box by turn, she explores many of the favourite themes of traditional music, and in doing so, delves into her own responses to the song.
