Musician and songwriter, originally from Nottingham and now based in York – Rachel’s complex and rich vocals play over rhythmic fingerpicked guitar. Her alternative folk songs are inspired by ethereal Celtic melodies and the thoughtful lyrics of storytelling songs, which narrate her experiences living and busking in the city. Having performed for a number of years as the vocalist in the Croft and Mullen jazz band, notes of soul and the Great American Songbook are instilled in her vocal style. She is influenced greatly by Eva Cassidy, Laura Marling, Joni Mitchell and Matt Corby, as well as more contemporary artists such as London Grammar. Having played the main stages of Warwick Folk Week, Bromyard Folk Festival and Beverley Folk Festival among others for her first year on the festival circuit, 2018 promises to be an exciting time for Rachel.
