AWARD-WINNING acoustic artist Lucy Ward will hit the right note at Etal Village Hall on Saturday.
The 21-year-old, who took the title of Best Newcomer at the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, has the ability to still an audience with the strength and beauty of her singing.
Hailing from Derby, she plays guitar and concertina but considers her voice to be her first instrument.
Her sets are an eclectic mix of traditional and modern folk interpretations, interspersed with her own songs.
There is a natural and easy sound to her music, brought to life by expressive performance, breath-taking delivery and Lucy’s own brand of banter and crowd participation.
She is developing into a fine songwriter and consummate performer who wows the audience with her genuine and sparkling personality.
Supporting Lucy will be local singer and songwriter, Iain Petrie.
