Event description Winner of Best Original Song with ‘Two Ravens’
BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014.

Nominated for Folk Singer of the Year, Best Album ‘Hidden Seam’.

The buzz continues to grow around Hidden Seam CD – Lisa Knapp’s critically acclaimed new album released in September 2013. With rave reviews, a cover feature in fRoots magazine and airplay on 6 Music, BBC Radio 3 as well as a Mark Radcliffe Folk Show live session, the long-awaited 2nd album see Lisa firmly re-established as one of the most creative and distinctive artists around.

Lisa emerged in 2007 with a remarkable debut Wild And Undaunted, with a radiant style of traditional folk and self-penned song, with fiddle, hammer dulcimer, strings and sonic delights from the technological age. Lisa was born and grew up in South London. Her musical development led her through drum and bass, teenage raves, acid house and an electric guitar bought to learn Jimi Hendrix songs. In her teens, she also came across folk music when she heard a friend’s parents record collection. She then found for herself the extraordinary voices and the vivid stories of Annie Briggs, Shirley Collins, Martin Carthy and Pentangle and she was hooked! In the intervening years, Lisa has established and evolved her own distinctive voice – absorbing a whole a range of influences and inspirations – and crafting a sound, and songwriting skill, at once beautiful, dramatic and adventurous.

Date Friday, 14/11/2014 - Friday, 14/11/2014
Event description A history of the First World War through the lives of Pt Ern Johnson & Pt Harry Jenner

Performed by Roy Bailey & Robb Johnson

This abridged version of Robb Johnson’s highly acclaimed song suite “Gentle Men” focuses on his grandfathers’ experience of the war. The songs present the effect of history on two of its statistics, two ordinary soldiers, two gentle men, who survived the war but were forever in its shadow. This shorter version is particularly relevant to the coming year’s commemoration of the centenary of start of The War To End All Wars, as it places real individuals, our everyday lives, at the centre of the narrative & understanding of history’s great events.
