Bella Hardy - The Dark Peak and the White
BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Bella Hardy will releases her new album. This is her first collection of music specifically from her Peak District home, with adaptations and new tunes to works from 'The Ballads and Songs of Derbyshire' published 1867, and original songs written for the history, folklore and legends of the area. 'The Dark Peak and The White' is produced by one of Scotland's most eminent musicians Kris Drever, famous for collaborations with artists such as Kate Rusby, Eddi Reader, and Jack Bruce, and for his work with multi-award winning band LAU. Supported by the Peak District National Park Authority, the album's stripped back instrumentation explores Bella's unique fiddle singing sound, inspired by and echoing the rich landscape of her peakland home Bella Hardy, Winner of Best Original Song BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012 "Many young musicians can sing and play beautifully, few are as adventurous and intriguing as Hardy."
