Featured Guests:
Kirsty is a young contemporary folk singer based in Sheffield UK who draws upon a wide range of traditional music. She has a most disarmingly transparent voice, but also the uncanny and beautiful knack of drawing attention to the song rather than the messenger, by the manner in which she employs it.

“Kirsty Bromley is a singer of songs of social justice, traditional songs and songs from the heart. Her voice is effortless yet stirring, at times ethereal but always earthy and with strong roots. Musical and beguiling.” - Nancy Kerr - BBC2 Folk Singer of the Year 2015

“Fine young voice, poised but unaffected, a confident, heartening debut.” - The Observer - The Guardian

“Beautiful album, effortless and mesmerising voice." - Maverick

“Well travelled young Folkie, Pure and Resonant Voice - She blows a mean trumpet.” - Songlines

Kirsty will be performing as a duo with Simon Dumpleton. Simon is a multi-instrumentalist, who works as a professional musician involved in a wide variety of on-going performance, recording and teaching projects. In addition to the Kirsty Bromley Band, he also plays accordion in the ceilidh band Gallivant and keyboard/accordion for Sheffield songwriter Neil McSweeney.
