Love and betrayal, witchcraft, playground games, a hornet and a beetle … folk singer Fay Hield and her stellar band offer an enticing glimpse into the world of English folklore.
Fay Hield is “one of folk music’s most pre-eminent modern voices” (MOJO), and was the brain behind The Full English, an academic project that she transformed into an award-winning show. Full English musicians are here in The Hurricane Party, alongside Fay, breathing new life into ancient tales.
