Nov 21st       CHRIS WOOD + LUCY WARD             £11 adv

Chris Wood is a veritable English folk encyclopaedia. Singer, composer, fiddler, guitarist, folklorist and more. He is an ardent enthusiast for traditional English dance music (with a background in English church music), including Morris and other rituals and ceremonies, but his repertoire also includes much French folk music and traditional Québecois material. He worked for many years in a duo with button accordion/melodeon player Andy Cutting. He is also a member of Wood, Wilson & Carthy, (with Roger Wilson and Martin Carthy), the English Acoustic Collective (with John Dipper on fiddle and Robert Harbron on concertinas).

Other projects include "The Imagined Village", "Listening to the River" and "Glassblower" (described as "an industrial ballet")

At the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2006, the Best Original Song category was won by Chris Wood and storyteller Hugh Lupton for "One in a Million", a modern retelling of a widespread traditional tale in which a lost ring is rediscovered in the stomach of a fish. He was also nominated in three other categories: Best Album (for "The Lark Descending"), Best Traditional Track ("Lord Bateman"), and Folk Singer of the Year.

In 2009 his album, Trespasser, took on the idea of enclosure: spiritual, intellectual, cultural and physical. Billy Bragg writing in The Independent said "Come Down Jehovah, is a measured statement of atheism that puts Dawkins to shame!". Wood went on to receive "Album of The Year" and "Singer of the Year" at BBC Radio 2's Folk Awards

2010's 'Handmade Life' continues to enhamce his reputation as one the premier songwriters of his generation--

"Chris Wood has developed into an exceptional songwriter ?venturing into areas that few artists would dare tackle."
The Guardian ★★★★

Lucy Ward from Derby is an up-and-coming singer from Derby and a recent finalist in the BBC Young Folk Awards.

"Lucy is something rare. She represents the evocation of a spirit and style I once remembered brought bang up to date. Originality in a somewhat threadbare world will bring her the success she so richly deserves." John Tams

Went to the gig last night, Chris was amazing. His songs are full of meaning. He was on great form. The Great Correction is my favourite song of the moment. I sort of knew what Chris would be brilliant, what I wasn't prepared for was how good the support act was. I'd never heard of Lucy Ward, but she took the stage and in five songs totally won over the audience. Her haunting song Bricks and Love has been going round and round in my head all morning. What a great night, it was my first time at Twickfolk but if all their shows are this good I'll be back.

Aw...thanks, Sue, for those kind words. We do our best but have to say last night was a teeny bit special. He's been twice before but I think this was peobably the most memorable. No setlist so events were unpredictable, unplanned and he was at his mischievous best. I can't remember the last time anyone got such a sustained and deserved ovation at the end of a gig. He fully deserved another encore but by 11pm we'd already overrun by about 20 minutes.

Lucy made a lot of friends and gave a most assured performance for one so young (she's still only 20). Without doubt she'll continue to get better and without doubt we'll see her again at TwickFolk before too long
