Friday Live: Lewis Barfoot
“Best known for the ethereal poise of her crystal singing voice” Folk and Honey.
Described by Irish Radio International as a maker of “Delicious music: A massage of the heart, a whisper to the soul”. Anglo-Irish singer songwriter Lewis Barfoot works with an uncomplicated loveliness of sound, combining her ethereal, evocative vocals with original compositions and reinventions of traditional songs from Ireland and the UK. A gifted storyteller transporting the listener to strange, magical, otherworldly places.
There’s a timelessness about her work, and as a bearer of the old songs she keeps the legacy of trad music alive in her unique creations. Frequently compared to the likes of Lisa Hannigan, Ane Brun, and Joni Mitchell. Her first recording, the independently released EP “Catch Me” as heard on Johnny Coppin’s BBC Radio 2 Folk show was described by Invisible Filter as “Utterly brilliant”. She is currently recording her debut album “Folkalism” with Scottish Fiddler Essa Flett, Welsh Cellist Hannah Thomas and English Clarinetist Matt Dibble.
