Saturday November 11th 2017 Open Stage with Zoe Wren
On Saturday November 11th we shall be holding another open stage downstairs at CB2, with special guest Zoe Wren. Folk-influenced singer-songwriter Zoё Wren was the youngest performer to play the main stage at Folkstock Festival when she was just 16. A recipient of the 2017 PRS Lynsey de Paul Prize for emerging female singer-songwriters, Zoё's new EP, based on bold contemporary re-tellings of traditional folk stories, is supported by this grant, and will be released in November. Her debut EP Pandora's Box was released with Folkstock in 2014, and her most recent single, Nothing to See, was released in 2016 and received airplay on BBC Radio 2 on the Bob Harris show. Zoё has played the Cambridge Folk Festival. Check her website http://www.zoewren.com or watch her performing 'Just a song away' below.
'It takes an especially strong new voice to rise above the general hubbub of the current English folk song flashmob... Zoё showcases a maturing voice and songs that have depth to match their indisputable charm'. (Instrumentali Musicale)
On November 11th our local performers will include:
Richard St John
