“Lucy Ward – Adelphi Has To Fly (Navigator Records NAVIGATOR047) Despite being not long hence through her sixth form schooling, Lucy Ward is already a six-year veteran of the folk club circuit and Young Folk Award finalist. But even that can’t adequately explain the brilliance of this CD. Stu Hanna, who produces, clearly recognises the stellar quality of Lucy’s voice and does everything possible to frame it with just enough colour and weight to let it shine through. Lucy responds with a mixture of songs from the folk tradition and her own pen that had me wondering in a year of personal musical highlights whether this was not the highest light of all. Of her own songs, Julia and Adelphi carry clever, subtle nods to Leonard Cohen, but it’s F For Love that had me tripped over, falling indeed, into a tailspin of head-over-heels helplessness – smitten once again.”
