At Purbeck Folk Festival this year we accompanied by BaylisGray who had towed along their cameras and sound equipment to capture some intimate music sessions for Folk Radio UK. They recorded three sessions, some of which were more challenging than others thanks to the wind, rain and background noise from stages. For Danni Nicholls’ session the clouds and wind took them from a lovely spot in a field to the shelter of the Folk Radio UK tent. Not an ideal situation but they pulled it off…
Danni Nicholls is a young singer songwriter who has a firm foot in the Americana camp having recently released her debut album A Little Redemption which has been receiving praise across the music press.
“A Little Redemption fulfils all the promise of its gestation and more. Entirely crowd funded, it slips effortlessly between smoky soul, folk-pop and heart-wrenching alt-country, all in a rich voice somewhere between Ms [Emmylou] Harris and Alison Krauss.”
– Andy Fyfe, Q Magazine
