2Day's Tune: Lucy Rose - Middle of the Bed

London based folk star 'Lucy Rose' has announced her first UK & Ireland headline tour for April & May to include a Belfast and Dublin date.

Here's a fine tune from Lucy's debut album 'Like I Used To':


Lucy is also one of the first acts announced for this year;s Cambridge Folk Festival:

The Cambridge Folk Festival is pleased to announce the first names for this year’s Festival.

Playing on Stage 2 on the opening Thursday night of the Festival will be: Lucy RoseWilly Mason andKathyrn Roberts & Sean Lakeman.

With her heart-stoppingly poignant songs and cracked porcelain voice, Lucy Rose has attracted universal acclaim - “Gentle, folky, confidential tone, undershot by a coolness of intelligence and self possession”The Daily Telegraph, “One of the country’s most promising new voices” “Utterly beautiful” Sunday Times. 

Fresh from a winter tour, including support slots with Mumford and Sons and Ben Howard, plus his third, widely acclaimed studio album, American singer-songwriter Willy Mason’s inimitable gravel deep vocal delivers songs awash with the sentiments of hope, disillusionment, love and lost connections.

Husband and wife duo, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman (brother of Seth) are lynchpins of the UK's burgeoning folk-acoustic revival. They make a much anticipated appearance at the Festival following the release of one the most eagerly awaited modern folk albums of the year, Hidden People, featuring Kathryn’s sublime voice and Sean’s masterly guitar arrangements.
