Thread Name: Listen out for Lucy Ward
Subject: Listen out for Lucy Ward
Lucy Ward is a wonderful young singer/songwriter from Derby who has got through to the semi-finals of the Young Folk Musician of the Year Awards. I've now seen her perform on several occasions and over this weekend, at Roots North, she did three superb sets.

She really has a most amazing talent, with a voice that brings you out in goose-bumps, the ability to put her own slant on every song she sings and an affinity with the audience that is totally natural and uncontrived. She also write some really penetrating and thoughtful songs.

The most incredible thing about her is her maturity - considering she's only 18.

She would certainly be a worthy winner of the Awards. If you haven't come across her yet, you certainly will in the future.

Listen to her here:
