It has been an incredible year so far for singer and harpist Rachel Newton. Since winning Instrumentalist of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards in December 2016, Rachel has gone on to be awarded Musician of the Year at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and her latest album Here’s My Heart Come Take It (which was a Featured Album of the Month on Folk Radio UK) was shortlisted for the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Awards.
The biggest achievement for Rachel this year, however, has been her first tour with her band in June followed by her first main stage festival appearance under her own name at Cambridge Folk Festival. There are just a few more chances to catch Rachel with her band in 2017 and all the dates are this month so don’t miss out!
