With the release of her debut EP Wolf in September 2018 Katherine Priddy has been gaining wide recognition for her eloquent lyrics, sublime melodies and extraordinary voice, so we were thrilled when, after our postponement of the 2020 festival, she was able to join us this summer instead.
Amassing radio plays from the likes of Gideon Coe, Mark Radcliffe, Janice Long & Tom Robinson has ensured Katherine turned all the right heads, not least venerable icon of the music universe Richard Thompson, who chose her as his tour support for his August 2019 Ireland tour
The release also led to packed out headline shows and festival appearances around the UK, including Underneath the Stars, Towersey and Cambridge Folk Festival where she was awarded the Christian Raphael Prize after leaving the audience enthralled.
After repressing the EP three times to fulfil demand, Katherine answered the call for more music with her single, ‘Letters From a Travelling Man’. The upbeat, Americana style track takes its inspiration from Katherine’s personal experiences of living on the road and the struggles of trying to maintain relationships alongside an unsettled lifestyle.
On 25 June we will be delighted to play a part in helping the livestream launch of Katherine's eagerly-anticipated debut album The Eternal Rocks Beneath and we are utterly delighted to be welcoming her to our Main Stage at Folk by the Oak.
