Folk artist at the Silk Mill

SINGER songwriter and alternative folk artist, Lewis Barfoot, will bring her headline Irish and UK tour to Frome’s Silk Mill on Friday 26th November. 

The tour will celebrate the release of her debut album Glenaphuca, which is released on November 19th.  

Promoters say, “Glenaphuca is a folk prayer to the ancestors, an album full of evocative, autobiographical original compositions and reinventions of traditional songs from Ireland and the UK. Poignant and profound, melancholic and beautiful, Lewis muses upon life, death, loss and the silenced feminine voice with the deepest grace.  

“In White Dress, an elegiac lament for Lewis’s mother, she ponders life after death, with The Fox and Twa Corbies she honours the natural cycles of death in nature and in Sweet Dreams she celebrates a life that has passed. 

“Lewis is a timeless and gifted storyteller who captivates listeners with her fearless lyrics and gorgeous otherworldly voice, frequently compared to the likes of Kate Rusby, Sandy Denny, Maíre Brennan, a young Joni Mitchell and Julie Fowlis. 

“Having previously performed in Irish folk ensemble Rún, Lewis has since cut her teeth as a solo artist on the London folk circuit, appearing regularly for institutions such as Nest Collective before moving back to her maternal home of Ireland.”
