Nancy Kerr & The Sweet Visitor Band

  • Level 3 Lounge
 

BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year 2015 Nancy Kerr heads out on tour in support of her brand new album, Instar.

Already a respected interpreter of traditional material, Nancy’s emergence as a writer of rare style has drawn comparisons to William Blake in her reawakening of a radical folk mythology as a backdrop for contemporary narratives.

Since the release of her solo debut, Sweet Visitor and Murmurs – her collaboration with Martin Simpson and Andy Cutting on Topic Records – Nancy finds herself increasingly fascinated by the role of the environment as a character in music, literature, art and film, Nancy’s new compositions explore the themes of human/ecological interaction that lie just beneath the surface of so many traditional folk songs.

Rowan Rheingans: Fiddle, Banjo & Voice.
Tim Yates: Double Bass, Melodeon & Voice.
Greg Russell: Guitars & Voice.
Tom Wright: Drums, Guitars & Voice.

The band’s music explores the lore and language of nature that provides a repertoire of raw, universal images with which to address subjects such as gender identity and sexuality, struggles for human rights, love and consent, colonialism and the effects of austerity on our culture and ourselves.
