Thread Name: Listen out for Lucy Ward
Subject: RE: Listen out for Lucy Ward
I caught most of her interview on BBC Radio Nottingham last night and I thought that she talked a lot of sense, especially the bit about feeling nervous before singing (as anyone who cares about their music should).
It was also nice to hear her rendition of "The Fairy Boy" a song I haven't heard since the middle sixties from either The Grehan Sisters or Paddy Tunney I can't remember which although an earlier Mudcat thread mentions Joe Heaney singing it (so she's obviously listening to the right people!)
Lucy sang from the floor at our club about a year ago when we had Frankie Armstrong as guest and she had attended Frankie's song workshop at Soar Bridge that afternoon. Clearly here is a girl who is still prepared to learn from the masters and who does not profess to know it all.
