Fay Hield is a singer who seems to have been born knowing how to carry a tune but with the rarer gift of knowing how to go straight to the heart of a song. A good example of this is Orfeo (the last FAY HIELD & The Hurricane Party album release) which features 11 superbly arranged traditional songs, including lead track, ‘Sir Orfeo’, based on a 13th Century retelling of the epic supernatural Greek fable, Orpheus and Eurydice. Fay’s gift for unearthing rare and interesting material is well represented throughout, including the obscure but beguiling nursery rhyme.
Many will know that Fay picked up 2 awards at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014 on Wednesday night with the Full English. They received the award for Best Group, and also the public vote for Best Album.
