With The Dawn Tour 2015 – supported by Routes South West, Bristol Music Centre and Arts Council England.
Bella Hardy, BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Singer of the Year 2014, tours her eagerly anticipated new album ‘With The Dawn’; a heartfelt collection of self-composed songs which tell a story of travel, of choices, of lessons unlearned, and also of hope. One of the most creative, prolific and original singers in the UK, her captivating voice inhabits her music and spins her narratives with an equal balance of strength and sensitivity.
The ‘With The Dawn’ Band complement Bella’s breath-taking vocals and narrative fiddle with a powerful and evocative mix of banjo, piano, electronics and drums. With roots firmly within the folk tradition, songs written straight from the heart, and bold steps into a new world of sound and expression, this is a performance not to be missed.
“…unveiled, committed, uncontrived, persuasive, passionate, empowering, and utterly wonderful” – Colin Irwin, fRoots
