Bella Hardy

Postcards & Pocketbooks: The Best of Bella Hardy

With unflinching courage, folk artist Bella Hardy has sought to explore and traverse musical boundaries in her search for meaning across art and cultures. “A shining star in the folk scene’s firmament” (fRoots Magazine), Hardy has melded influences from Derbyshire ballads to Chinese poetry to conjure stories that call straight to the heart. In this concert that tracks the extraordinary journey across her first nine records, she’ll share her celebrated songwriting from the last ten years, all with that acclaimed crystalline voice that won her a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Singer of the Year.

“few are as adventurous and intriguing as Hardy”
