Devonshire singer-songwriter Alex Hart accompanied folk-rock star Seth Lakeman on the fiddler’s Pilgrim’s Tale tour which came to St Nicholas’s Church in February. She is also a member of Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre’s band and was due to tour America with him before the pandemic lockdown began. Alex began playing at the age of seven when her grandfather found a dusty violin in his attic. She soon moved onto the guitar and song writing, falling in love with jazz. She cites “the magic of Doris Day” as a big influence and inspiration.
