‘What a beautiful, beautiful voice she has, just gorgeous!’

– Eve Blair, BBC Radio Ulster

 

‘Virtuoso violinist and all-round accomplished musician’ Josey De Rossi, One Stop Arts

 

Join folk artist Lewis Barfoot and multi-instrumentalist Elisabeth Flett as they journey with song, spoken word and music to create a rich tapestry of land, people and stories. Drawing inspiration from traditional folk music and nature, Woods & Water guides the listener through landscapes of moss, trees, rivers, birdsong… and magic! With original compositions and reinventions of traditional songs including Bonny Portmore, Diggers and Wild Mountain Thyme performed on voice, guitar, fiddle, viola, ukulele and loop pedal, Woods & Water promises to be a spellbinding performance which will enchant folk fans and nature lovers alike.

 

Lewis Barfoot is a timeless and gifted storyteller who captivates listeners with her fearless lyrics and gorgeous ‘other-worldly’ voice. Frequently compared to the likes of Kate Rusby, Sandy Denny, Maíre Brennan and Julie Fowlis, her debut album Glenaphuca has received widespread acclaim and support from BBC Radio and RTÉ1.  Before her solo work she sang in the folk ensemble Rún, playing at Glastonbury, the Union Chapel and folk festivals across the UK; and releasing two EP’s with them. Lewis is now an established  solo artist on the London folk circuit.

 

‘The delightful sound of a musician who is both an accomplished composer of original material and a torchbearer

keeping alive traditional styles and song’

David Pratt – FRUK

Did you know?

In 1958, a group of engineering students managed to hoist an Austin Seven car onto the roof of Senate House, with the help of some clever calculations. It took the university a week to remove it – and will surely go down in history as one of the boldest student pranks ever!
