Recording artist and songwriter Ange Hardy is appearing at The Merlin Theatre as part of her Bare Foot Folk tour.
This mesmerising combination of beautiful story telling and delicate guitar work is propelled into the modern age through the delightful use of 'live looping', a little box of tricks which sits at Ange's feet and allows her to record and instantly play back additional musical layers from the stage.
The effortlessness with which Ange builds layers of perfect harmonies in front of your eyes, combined with her honest and heartfelt insight into the stories and inspirations behind her songs, results in an intimate evening of entertainment that can't fail to delight.
Young Martha's Well is a story of a Mother’s eternal love, Crafty Father John is destined to make you chuckle, Mother Willow Tree is a moral tale about the heart behind your actions. Forlorn Land is a battle cry for the suffering and injustice of war, Away With You Lassie, The Old Maiden, and The Storm Has Now Begun are a trio of songs about the tragedy and peril of the sea... the list goes on. Ange's ability to write contemporary folk songs that draw on traditional influence is second to none.
