Richard Navarro

For the first time, Hay welcomes the extraordinary vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Richard Navarro.

Evocative and uplifting, his original songs take the folk traditions of melody and storytelling and supercharge them through live looping and improvisation. Along with Nicholas Thurston (double bass/guitar/synths), the duo have regularly supported Joan Armatrading on her UK tours and are touring their powerful new collection of songs - 'Firewatching' - throughout 2017.

"Richard is a genius. He has exalted words in such a way that angels could hear them." Lemn Sissay

"Finely-crafted songwriting" Joan Armatrading

"A wonderful voice" Susan Marling, Radio 2

"Richard is an outstanding performer, with a unique sound that moves from the epic soundtrack to the intimate with ease." Bern Leckie
