Bella Hardy Heads To The Hive

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Singer of the year 2014 is heading to The Hive on Saturday 28 October.  Having spent the winter in China as British Council Musician in Residence, Bella’s spent the start of the year in the studio with her trusty musical companions creating some incredible new music.  Her gig at The Hive offers you the chance to hear this new material from her album ‘Hey Sammy’ released on 24 November.  

This album Hey Sammy features her acclaimed live trio, including leading Scottish guitarist Anna Massie and songwriting collaborator Jazz pianist Tom Gibbs.  Produced by Paul Savage (The Delgados, Mogwai, Arab Strap) at Glasgow’s Chem19 studio,Hey Sammy combines innovative, artful arrangements that at times bring to mind Bon Iver, Midlake and Joni Mitchell’s Hejira, with an unabashed embrace of gleeful, melodic choruses delivered in Bella’s unmistakeable soaring and swooping voice.

Hot on the heels of Bella Hardy are Cardboard Fox – 17th Nov and Calan – 9th Dec.  Full details on Uptown Folk and everything else that’s on at The Hive can be found online at  www.hiveonline.org.uk, by phone on 10743 234970, or popping into the venue on Belmont, Shrewsbury, SY1 1TE.
