Description

Influential singer-violinist Nancy Kerr launches her eagerly anticipated debut solo album Sweet Visitor. All songs written by Nancy Kerr album produced by Andy Bell (Bellowhead,The Full English) featuring Martin Simpson, Emily Smith, Tim van Eyken, James Fagan, Tom Wright, Tim Yates, Rob Harbron, Jess Arrowsmith. Nancy is a 5 times Radio 2 Folk Award Winner: Horizon Award 2000; Best Duo 2003/2011 with James Fagan; Best Group and Best Album 2014 with The Full English. Nominated Best Original Song 2011 for Queen of Waters. Winner Best Album (Spiral earth 2011) for Twice Reflected Sun (Navigator041). 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 about love and conflict, motherhood, migration, hardship and jubilation, and the tensions between rural and urban life. "Nancy Kerr's songs are unusual, intriguing. Steeped in folksong, she nonetheless breaks out of the mould, coming sideways to her subject, embroidering it with detail and surprises until the focus of the song comes clear. She is such a good singer that sometimes you really have to concentrate to get the message - but it's worth it when you get it." Peggy Seeger. "Upon hearing Nancy Kerr for the first time I wanted to hear some more. The songs, the singing, the accompaniments, they meld together into a true sound of England." Christy Moore
