Ange Hardy with support Greg Hancock - St Paul's Church, Church Road, Starcross, Exeter EX6 8QB - 7.30pm - Tickets £12.00+ advance (£15.00 after 15.09.18. Concessions £8.00+ from WeGotTickets.
Ange Hardy - Nominated at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and celebrated by The Telegraph as “one of Britain’s top folk musicians” Ange Hardy has grabbed the attention of the traditional folk music world by writing new material and embracing modern technologies whilst maintaining a traditional feel.
Alongside a staggering list of other accolades Ange was awarded FATEA Magazine’s “Female Vocalist of the Year” in 2013, “Album of the Year” in 2014, “The Tradition Award” in 2015 and "Duo of the Year" with Lukas Drinkwater in 2016.
Her rapid rise in the folk world began when her 2013 debut folk album Bare Foot Folk was played on BBC Radio 2 and gained the attention of veteran folk broadcaster Mike Harding, her 2014 album The Lament of The Black Sheep subsequentlyreceived 5-stars from The Telegraph which led to Arts Council England funding her 2015 album Esteesee – an album of music based on the life and work of Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Greg Hancock is a Devon-based singer-songwriter with a growing following around the UK. After many years overseas writing songs in private it was only five years ago that he began to perform in public. After numerous appearances both as a soloist and as a duo with cellist Jo Hooper, and supporting some of the top names in the modern folk/ acoustic scene such as Cara Dillon, Boo Hewerdine, Lucy Ward, Jim Causeley, Jacob and Drinkwater and Charlie Dore, in 2017 he recorded a full length lalbum titled “A303” which fully showcased his intricate guitar playing and quirky, unexpected song structures and subject matter - and was enthusiastically received and has been given extensive airplay.
