Kirsty is a young contemporary UK folk singer who draws upon a wide range of traditional music. She has a most disarmingly transparent voice, but also the uncanny and beautiful knack of drawing attention to the song rather than the messenger, by the manner in which she employs it.
 
After winning the prestigious Fred Jordan Memorial Folk Singing Competition at Bromyard Folk Festival in 2010, Kirsty has continued to perform at festivals and folk clubs around the UK & overseas including; Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France & many more.
 
In August 2013 Kirsty’s song ‘Absent Mother’ won the John Birmingham song writers competition under 25s.
 
Her warm and expressive voice is distinctive and memorable, she is already winning strong and enthusiastic support around the World.
 
As well as singing Kirsty has performed at the Beautiful Days Festival with Dogan & The Deerhunters on trumpet. She recently toured her debut album ‘Time Ashore’ supporting Australian group The Spooky Mens Chorale around the UK.  Her return visit to Humph Hall is part of her current tour of New Zealand and Australia.

Performing with Kirsty on this occasion will be the delightful and immensely talented Liz Frencham.

Liz is a stunning performer in her own right. A luminous presence, armed with a double-bass and a smile, oozing cheeky Rickie Lee spontaneity and Joni-style honesty, wrapped in gentle Norah Jones soul.

Liz has become a hugely popular 'favourite' at Humph Hall performing here with the likes of Fred Smith, Gregory Page & Martin Pearson as well as in her own right.
