Known for over 25 years as a skilled interpreter of traditional music and more recently as a composer of startlingly original new folk songs, Nancy Kerr has become one of the most sought-after ensemble musicians on today’s British folk and scene. Now for something different. Nancy Kerr solo. In this new, intimate setting, Nancy revisits her celebrated deft touch on the violin and viola as well as her distinctive use of fingerpicked guitar, allowing space for new and ancient songs and tunes, and the stories behind them, to breathe and be heard anew.
This is music to challenge and inspire, confront and sympathise. A chance to experience the intimate drama of solo folk performance: Kerr's music in its truest and most conversational form.
