Fay Hield - A singer who seems to have been born knowing how to carry a tune but with the rarer gift of knowing how to go straight to the heart of a song.
Her debut solo album 'Looking Glass', was released in September 2010 by prestigious folk label, Topic Records and quickly earned Fay many accolades as well as a nomination for the Horizon Award at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Her second album Orfeo features 11 superbly arranged traditional songs, including lead track, 'Sir Orfeo', based on a 13th Century retelling of the epic supernatural Greek fable, Orpheus and Eurydice. Fay's gift for unearthing rare and interesting material is well represented throughout.
The recordings also see Fay confidently fronting a stellar supporting cast; The Hurricane Party. Consisting of some of the finest folk musicians working today The Hurricane Party features ; Andy Cutting (button accordions, melodeon), Rob Harbron(English Concertina, fiddle, vocals), Sam Sweeney (fiddle, viola, cello, nyckelharpa, vocals) and Jon Boden (fiddle, guitar, percussion, double bass, mandolin, additional banjo and vocals), and members of the band wilbe at her Broadstairs show,
