Derbyshire singer-songwriter Lucy Ward will make a more than welcome return to Lichfield Guildhall when she co-headlines L2F on Saturday night.
Her interest in music was sparked when she received her first guitar at 14, and then ventured into acoustic clubs, where she was first exposed to traditional and folk music. In 2009 she reached the final of the BBC Young Folk Award, and her career grew from there.
In 2012 she won the Horizon Award for best newcomer from the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and she has since released three critically acclaimed albums, and played numerous shows and festivals all over the country.
As well as her own music, Lucy has written for both film and theatre and has been involved in many varied music projects.
