We are delighted to have booked Fay, having seen her a few times in 2010 and been blown away. Clearly Topic were as well as she is the first artist they have taken onto their label in ten years! Fay is appearing tonight with Sam Sweeney of Bellowhead and Rob Harbron of the English Acoustic Collective.

Fay Hield began her singing life in the lively music scene around the Famous Bacca Pipes Folk Club in Keighley. She was instrumental in launching the Haworth Arts Festival and the Three's Company folk promotions organisation.

In 2009 a new concert line-up with Rob Harbron (English Acoustic Collective) and Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead) was established, built around a striking repertoire of often obscure material drawn from rarely-thumbed collections. This spicy stew of songs and ballads, catches and caprices is showcased on her debut solo CD - Looking Glass, released September 2010 on the prestigious Topic Records.
Her first outing at Oxford Festival in 2009 was Acoustic Magazine's Gig Of The Month:

Her strong voice, with soft, comforting northern tones, delivered songs from the length and breadth of the country… Contained within a festival bursting at the seems with talent, this performance really stood out as one of the highlights. Properganda online describe the London show from her recent Looking Glass tour: Sam on fiddles and Rob on concertina and fiddle are both highly accomplished, but seem to knit in the close confines of the stage to provide an almost telepathic backing over which Fay's superb voice soars.

Reviews of Looking Glass:
'an uncompromising album of old-fashioned folk values...a real singer… in an age of honey throated whimpering' fRoots

'The album is brilliant, and the best thing Topic has released in years!' Mike Harding BBC Radio 2

'Unadorned – and quite exquisite…Hield is a rare talent' Uncut

Support artists tonight will be Darren Black and Matt Allin

Darren Black is an excellent singer and instrumentalist. He has a rapidly growing profile on the folk/acoustic scene. Described by Rock 'n' Reel magazine as 'a name to note', he hails from a quiet corner of the Welsh valleys and carries a heart-felt honesty in his music. With voice, guitar and fiddle, he performs his own thought-provoking songs and tunes, and 'has an incisive flair for blurring the boundaries between the traditional and contemporary'.

Matt Allin is local to East Dulwich and a great singer of traditional songs as well as his own , and a great guitarist and melodeon player, he opened for Martin Carthy Norma Waterson & Chris Parkinson at DHFC last year , and is a regular at our Mag gigs.
