We are thrilled to host Katherine Priddy at Harwell Village Hall a year after she sold out one of our Lean To Sessions at our home in Abingdon last year.

Birmingham-based folk artist Katherine Priddy who emerged onto the scene with her long-awaited debut EP 'Wolf', has been turning heads and steadily gaining attention. ‘Wolf’ has been championed by the BBC 2 Folk Show, BBC 6 Music’s Gideon Coe and Tom Robinson and BBC Wales, as well as receiving exceptional reviews.

Having previously supported the likes of The Chieftains, Martin Carthy, Vashti Bunyan, John Smith and Scott Matthews, Katherine solidified her place on bigger stages with a tour of Ireland with Richard Thompson in August 2019. As well as this, she has played well-earned spots at festivals, including Cambridge Folk Festival, Towersey Folk Festival, Shambala and Underneath the Stars and she walked away from her first performance at Cambridge Folk with the Christian Raphael Award.

In December 2019, Priddy released a limited edition vinyl single ‘Letters From A Travelling Man’ on Static Caravan label, an upbeat song about the perils of living an unsettled lifestyle on the road, contrasted with a much mellower B-side ‘Come and Go’, a duet with George Boomsma. During the lockdown she collaborated with Lukas Drinkwater, Jon Wilks and Jon Nice to release two Nick Drake covers which were both very well received.

Priddy’s original works are delivered with an emotional maturity, depth and a vulnerable tenderness that still carries a darker edge, citing Nick Drake, John Martyn, Tunng and Imagined Village amongst her many influences. Her lyrics are particularly noteworthy - a tribute to her life-long love affair with literature and poetry and the stories she weaves are transporting.

Support will be from The People Versus lead by Harwell’s own Jack Wilkinson.
