Winner Best Original Song 'Two Ravens' - BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014.
Nominated for Folk Singer of the Year, Best Album 'Hidden Seam' - BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014.
Support Act: Oliver Cherer
The buzz continues to grow around Hidden Seam CD – Lisa Knapp’s critically acclaimed new album released in September 2013. With rave reviews, a cover feature in fRoots magazine and airplay on 6 Music, BBC Radio 3 as well as a Mark Radcliffe Folk Show live session, the long-awaited 2nd album see Lisa firmly re-established as one of the most creative and distinctive artists around.
Lisa emerged in 2007 with a remarkable debut Wild And Undaunted, with a radiant style of traditional folk and self-penned song, with fiddle, hammer dulcimer, strings, banjo and sonic delights from the technological age. Lisa was born and grew up in South London. Her musical development led her through drum and bass, teenage raves, acid house and an electric guitar bought to learn Jimi Hendrix songs. In her teens, she also came across folk music when she heard a friend’s parents record collection. She then found for herself the extraordinary voices and the vivid stories of Annie Briggs, Shirley Collins, Martin Carthy and Pentangle and she was hooked! In the intervening years, Lisa has established and evolved her own distinctive voice – absorbing a whole a range of influences and inspirations – and crafting a sound, and songwriting skill, at once beautiful, dramatic and adventurous.
