We’re so excited to share the news that one of our Alumna, Lewis Barfoot, who graduated from ALRA in 2012 is releasing a 5 track debut EP “Catch Me”.
Half Irish, half English songbird Lewis has her voice deeply ensconced in the roots of Folk. Drawing inspiration from her Irish roots, her father’s finger picking guitar & 3 years singing with Gaelic acapella ensemble Rún, with whom she performed at Glastonbury, Lovebox & The Union Chapel before going solo.
In 2013, Lewis toured the world with 1927 playing the Caretaker and Mrs Villycar in the critically acclaimed “The animals and children took to the streets”.
Lewis visited 21 countries in 11 months. She wrote a song in every country, or rather the songs wrote themselves. Sometimes they were directly inspired by the country: by the people she met, the stories and folk tales she heard. And at other times they were inspired by memories or emotions that needed to be heard in that moment. Lewis has chosen 5 of these songs to record and bring together in her 5 track EP, "Catch Me". It will go on general release from 15th January but is available digitally through Bandcamp now!
Lewis has a launch concert on Friday 15th January 2016 at the spectacular intimate live music venue, St Pancras Old Church, with guest support from female musicians I Am Moon and Penniless Cove who will share personal, soul searching lyrics from Ireland followed by the gin soaked folk pop melodies of Wales.
It would be amazing if we could get some ALRA troops along to support!
