About the artists:
Lewis Barfoot is a timeless and gifted storyteller who captivates listeners with her fearless lyrics and gorgeous ‘other-worldly’ voice. Frequently compared to the likes of Kate Rusby, Sandy Denny, Maíre Brennan and Julie Fowlis, her debut album Glenaphuca has received widespread acclaim and support from BBC Radio and RTÉ1. Before her solo work she sang in the folk ensemble Rún, playing at Glastonbury, the Union Chapel and folk festivals across the UK; and releasing two EP’s with them. Lewis is now an established solo artist on the London folk circuit.
Elisabeth Flett is an award-winning Scottish multi-instrumentalist, theatre-maker and writer. Winner of the 2015 Cecil Sharp House Adult Fiddle Championship and the 2021 University of Aberdeen Literary Lights Creative Writing Award, Elisabeth was a 2017 semi-finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards (as part of duo Shamblestone) and a 2021 semi-finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician.
