Lucy Farrell and Andrew Waite release their debut album as a duo at the end of 2019 and will be heading out on tour in February next year to support the album release.
Lucy Farrell is quietly building her solo career with her exquisite renditions of traditional ballads and quietly moving original songs. As one fourth of The Furrow Collective, Lucy is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner in the Best Group category following the release of the band’s widely acclaimed Wild Hog LP in 2017.
As a soloist, accompanying herself on tenor guitar, viola or shruti box by turn, she explores many of the favourite themes of traditional music, and in doing so, delves into her own responses to the song.
Andrew Waite is an accordion player and composer from the Scottish Borders. He plays in bands such as Tyde, Dallahan, Eliza Carthy and the Wayward Band and Fourth Moon. His music is rooted in Scottish, Irish and English Trad music but he takes influences from many genres such as Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, Bluegrass, Funk and Classical music.
