Rosie Hood and Lucy Huzzard | Fri 4th May 2018

By | April 1, 2018

Rosie Hood is a folk singer from Wiltshire, known for her strong, pure voice and engaging solo performance.

A BBC Performing Arts Fellow in 2015 and a 2016 Horizon Award nominee at the Radio 2 Folk Awards, Rosie has become more than purely a traditional singer.

Having started learning folk songs at an early age from her family, Rosie has a keen interest in the history of traditional songs, particularly those of her native Wiltshire, where she has spent time researching in the local archives and developing a broad repertoire of local songs.

Rosie’s BBC Fellowship year with the English Folk Dance & Song Society proved a pivotal point in her career giving her time and space to develop as an artist.

The year saw Rosie develop her song-writing with mentor Emily Portman, hone her instrumental skills and even resulted in a transatlantic collaboration with New York based singer and guitarist Jefferson Hamer.

Melodeon player Lucy Huzzard is perhaps best-known for her clog dancing in the Demon Barbers’ Lock In show and her work with Third Beat Dance Collective.

Lucy studied on Newcastle University’s Folk Degree as well as at the Eric Sahlström Institutet in Sweden.
