I am very excited to announce that I’ve won ‘Best Original Song‘ at the BBC Folk Awards! The song in question is ‘Hatchlings’, inspired by the myth of Leda and the Swan, a lullaby from Leda to her two sets of twins, hatched from eggs. It was a brilliant night and a highlight was when my 7 month-old daughter shook the hand of Alex Salmond! I’d particularly like to thank the musicians who played with me on ‘Hatchlings: Lucy Farrell, Rachel Newton and Lucy Deakin...And also thanks to everyone who comes to my gigs, supports my music and has given me encouragement over the years – it’s all MASSIVELY appreciated!!
