Acclaimed folk singer to perform in Reeth this weekend

Ange Hardy & Lukas Drinkwater.

Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Ange Hardy will be performing in Swaledale later this week when she appears at Reeth Memorial Hall with string player Lukas Drinkwater.

Nominated at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and celebrated by The Telegraph as ‘one of Britain’s top folk musicians’, Ange Hardy has collected a string of accolades and grabbed the attention of the traditional folk music world by writing new material and embracing modern technologies whilst maintaining a traditional feel.

As a solo artist Ange performs with a 27-string Salvi Harp, three different guitars, a variety of low whistles, a bodhrán drum, a tambourine, and an Indian shruti box, which she combines with innovative and subtle use of live looping to build layers up vocal harmonies.
