About Lucy Ward
After winning the horizon award for best newcomer at the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Lucy’s career has gone from strength to strength establishing her as one of the hottest performers on the UK folk scene, pulling a full capacity audience for her Cambridge Folk Festival debut.
In 2013 it was announced that she had been nominated for the acclaimed “Folk singer of the year” at the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, making Lucy one of the youngest people ever to be nominated for this most prestigious award.
Her debut album “Adelphi has to fly” was released in june 2011 by Navigator Records and was met with widespread critical acclaim. Lucy was named by mojo as ‘Britfolk’s most vibrant and forthright new young talent’ and attracted four star reviews from the Guardian and Maverick Magazine among others.
Her brilliant second album ‘Single flame’ (again for Navigator Records), was released on 19 August 2013 to rave reviews. Produced by Stu Hanna (of folk duo Megson), ‘Single flame’ showcased a maturity from her debut and showed the development in Lucy’s music, singing and musicianship.
Her 3rd album “I dreamt I was a bird”, released on Betty Beetroot Records on 2nd October 2015 was again received warmly by critics and reached #32 in the Offical Indie Chart and #5 in the Official Indie Album Breaker chart.
