About This Show

Mara Simpson is a British musician and story-teller, currently based in Stroud. Through her songs and collaborations with artists (Poppy Ackroyd, Fiddes Smith, Jools Owen. Ellie Mason), visual artist (Becky Lu, Gudrun Olsen) and local communities (2018 community choir collaboration tour), she draws on the sublime and the ridiculous from our everyday. Foxes Fair – Tamsyn, Grace, Louella and Johanna had been friends and admiring each other musically for years before it finally occurred to them in 2015 to join forces professionally. The sentiment of four friends singing and playing together for their own enjoyment remains at the forefront of the result which is Foxes Fair. Inspired by the deep well of traditional folk music, tailoring songs and melodies to fit their own unique musical style, their playful string arrangements (using the classic old-time styles of 5-string banjo, Appalachian dulcimer and finger-picked guitars) provide a delightful backdrop to their natural and effortless harmonies.
