Details

One of the most inventive and creative artists around, Lisa Knapp pushes boundaries with her radiant interpretation of traditional folk music. Her vocals reel you in, “cool and pure like iced water, edged with a menace and strength” (The Guardian). Her most recent album Till April is Dead gathered many five-star reviews.

The month of May is the focal point for an eruption of traditions, rituals and celebrations across the Northern Hemisphere: summer is coming, the weather is warmer and the promise of long, light evenings provide a perfect excuse to sing, dance and celebrate.

Melding together some of the most beautiful, strange and beguiling ‘May’ songs inspired by weird and wonderful happenings across Britain, as well as folklore hailing from here and distant shores, and beautiful folk songs of love and loss.

“…Knapp’s voice throughout is a revelation, both pure and wild... Cuckoos, whirring clocks and buzzing flies add extra layers to this fascinating soundworld, on an album overflowing with warmth, light and waywardness.”
The Guardian 5*

"Lisa Knapp's never been short of ideas but with Till April Is Dead she's revealed her true identity as a tradition-immersed yet utterly contemporary and fearlessly original talent..."
