JONNOPROMOTIONS PRESENTS LUCY WARD "THE RETURN TO ROOTS TOUR"Lucy Ward is a brilliant singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Derby. There is a natural and easy sound to her music that is brought to life by expressive performance, Lucy's own brand of banter and her genuine and sparkling personality. After winning the Horizon Award (Best Newcomer) at the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Lucy was named by MOJO as “Britfolk’s most vibrant and forthright new young talent”. Since then, Lucy’s career has gone from strength to strength establishing herself as one of the hottest performers on the UK Folk scene. She pulled in capacity audiences to her Cambridge Folk Festival debut and the mighty Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury Festival (official) 2013. In 2014 she was one of the four nominees for BBC Folk Singer of the Year. Tickets are £15 available now from www.eTickets.im/jp and available from the usual Peel Centenary Centre outlets. Doors 7pm, show 8pm. Delighted to announce that Isle of Man resident, Malcolm Stitt has agreed to open the show! Malcolm is a virtuoso on guitar, bouzouki and a number of other instruments. He’s been a member of Deaf Shepherd and Boys of the Lough; played guitar and bouzouki for Kate Rusby and travelled the World before settling on the Island some years back. He last played for JonnoPromotions at the Three Legs Festival in 2012, with Erika Kelly, opening for LAU. We look forward to Malcolm’s solo debut!

"Martin Simpson's return to the Isle of Man for his Douglas & IOM GuitarFest debuts. No-one has more successfully combined diverse elements of British, American and roots music than Martin, multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner. Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, electric, spellbinding and deeply moving. Whether playing American old-time music, blues, a Dylan song or his own material, Martin Simpson is unpredictable, individual, and a guitarist of immense subtlety.
