Description

POLR Presents is back bringing you the best in contemporary folk music with even more fantastic acts.


The Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads are a four-piece female ensemble who enjoy singing low-pitched folk songs about love, despair, and dastardly boyfriends.

They bonded over maritime work songs and failed romances in the alto section of a sea shanty choir, deciding to form a girl-group during a long car ride to Cornwall in 2015. Since then, they have performed their spirited harmonies at festivals and venues in London and further afield, including Wilton’s Music Hall, the Southbank Centre, Fire in the Mountain festival, Folk East Festival and on board the Cutty Sark.

The Broads supply their repertoire of traditional stories with a very contemporary verve and energy, using old songs to fuel new takes on the lives of women both past and present.


“Young female quartet the Norfolk Broads are strong storytellers...Their close harmonies brought a witty feminist take to a well-curated set of tales of impotence, greedy landlords, and the joys of a single life.” ~ The Guardian

Nick Hart

Nick Hart is a singer deeply rooted in the English tradition. His repertoire is made up largely of songs from his native East Anglia, which are presented simply, with minimal guitar accompaniment and a great emphasis on storytelling. 2017 saw the release of his first solo album 'Nick Hart Sings Eight English Folk Songs.'

"Absolutely excellent" ~ Folk Radio UK
