Since breaking on to the scene with her debut album in 2011, Lucy Ward has toured consistently throughout the UK and Europe. In addition to performing at all the top UK folk festivals she has played the Acoustic Stage and Billy Braggs Leftfield Stage at two Glastonbury Festivals.

Her last album Single Flame entered the official UK Independent Record Chart top 30, and earned her a nomination for the prestigious Folk Singer of the Year Award at the 2014 BBC Folk Awards and was voted No 2 in Mojo Magazine’s Folk Album of the Year Chart.

Whether performing solo or with her band, her unique brand of nu-folk must be heard. Her songs are always thought provoking and delivered with a passion and sincerity that, married to her amazing, attention grabbing, stage presence, makes her one of the most exciting and compelling acts on the music scene.

'Inspiring' Billy Bragg

 "Lucy is a breath taking presence on stage. Her unpretentious outlook and warmth melts the hearts of audiences. Her disarming personality, 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.” Shrewsbury Folk Festival
