Event description

Description

Nancy Kerr is one of the most celebrated folk musicians of her generation. She has won six Folk Awards from BBC Radio 2, including Folk Singer of the Year (2015) and Best Album of the Year (2011) for Twice Reflected Sun. In total she has collaborated on more than thirty albums with artists such as James Fagan, Eliza Carthy, Leon Rosselson, the Melrose Quartet, Martin Simpson and Andy Cutting. As a member of the The Full English, she was the recipient of the BBC Radio 2 award for the Best Group of 2014 as well as the Best Album of the Year. Also in 2014 she was a major songwriter and performer for the Elizabethan Session - the supergroup formed to write, record and perform live an album celebrating Elizabethan England.

Now she comes to Moretonhampstead to perform an intimate selection of songs as a solo artist, accompanying herself with violin and guitar. Lyrically inventive and musically both original and steeped in tradition, she manages to pull off that trick of doing something new and something old at the same time. Many have expressed their appreciation with simple superlatives. 'Simply Perfection' said the English Folk Dance and Song Magazine of her album Sweet Visitor. 'Simply a masterpiece' wrote Fatea Magazine about her 2016 album, Instar. 'An absolute masterpiece' declared Bright Young Folk of the same work.

To hear her in the medieval church of Moretonhampstead, on Dartmoor, with its wonderful acoustics, as the summer evening light fades and the candles burn brightly, promises to be a wonderful experience. There will be a short interval and a licensed bar. Doors (and the bar) open at 6:45.
