A second-time guest of Whare Flat Folk Festival, Kirsty is a young, contemporary folk singer from Sheffield (UK) who draws upon a wide range of traditional music. She has a most disarmingly transparent voice, but also the uncanny and beautiful knack of drawing attention to the song, rather than the messenger, by the manner in which she employs it.
After winning the prestigious Fred Jordan Memorial Folk Singing Competition at Bromyard Folk Festival in 2010, Kirsty has continued to perform at festivals and folk clubs around the UK & overseas including; Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France & many more. It was winning the competition at Bromyard that encouraged Kirsty to record her EP in 2011, in February 2015 she gave up her full time job to take up music as a profession. Her warm and expressive voice is distinctive and memorable, she is already winning strong and enthusiastic support around the World.
