 Fay Hield & The Hurricane Party

‘One of the best albums I’ve heard in years’ – Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

‘Unadorned and quite exquisite’ – Uncut Magazine (****)

A singer who seems to have been born knowing how to carry a tune but with the rarer gift of knowing how to go straight to the heart of a song.  

Her debut solo album 'Looking Glass', was released in September 2010 by prestigious folk label, Topic Records and quickly earned Fay many accolades as well as a nomination for the Horizon Award at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Fay’s second album, Orfeo, was released May 2012.  'Orfeo' is an album of songs to which Fay feels an especially strong connection. Her choice of material and the delivery of it, reflect a rare sensitivity and appreciation of the tradition whilst remaining naturalistic and highly distinctive. Fay Hield & The Hurricane Party will appear at a range of key festivals throughout the summer before undertaking a major UK tour in the Autumn.      

Fay and her partner, Bellowhead frontman Jon Boden, also find time to run two folk clubs – Royal Traditions (in their local village of Dungworth) and Bright Phoebus (Sheffield).
