Georgia Lewis, a "young, exuberant & musically adept" (R2 Magazine) folk singer and multi-instrumentalist has been garnering attention on the English folk scene with her "alluring and engaging stage presence" (Saltcellar Folk Club). Joined onstage by Felix Miller (guitar), Rowan Piggott (fiddle), and Tom Sweeney (bass), "she is fast becoming one of the most in-demand artists on the club and festival circuit.” (Eastbourne Folk Club). The band perform "both contemporary and traditional songs with a character and raunch that makes the hairs on your arms stand up and take note." (Lou Rhodes)
She is also the recent winner of The Future of Young Folk Award at Bromyard Folk Festival, as well as Ely Folk Festival 2016's Band Competion.
Exquisite, refreshing, original. “LightGarden is without doubt one of the most enthralling acts on the scene” (Talk Magazine) LightGarden’s genre-defying music has world, folk and traditional influences, fast and gentle. Their original songs and music combine intricate guitar, harmonium, bouzouki, fiddle and clarinet interwoven with the harmonic bell-like sounds of overtone singing to produce a unique, uplifting, unexpected and irresistible sound "for which the word beautiful might have been invented". Audiences have said “ I don’t know how to describe LightGarden but they’re a real experience” , “Lush, in a good way!”and “My favourite festival moment”.
