South-East based folk musician and songstress, Lizzy Hardingham, is paving her way as a powerhouse performer with "beautifully delivered songs that sing straight to the heart". 2019 saw her storm the UK folk club and festival scene, including Cambridge Folk Festival, while in 2020 she captivated online audiences with "a voice that could fill a stadium and the sensitivity to bring a room to attentive silence". Lizzy is currently being mentored by the English Folk Expo and working on "firmly nailing her place as one of the rising stars of the folk scene".
After appearing as a finalist in 2018’s New Roots competition she has gone from strength to strength. Lizzy has won the Herts, Milkmaid Folk Club and Watford Folk Song songwriting competitions as well the Royston Young Artists competition. She has had successful radio play nationally and across the pond as well as success in running her own songwriting competition alongside the St Albans Folk Festival. Her new record features a varied mix of traditional and self-penned songs about our seas and half of the proceeds go towards the great work done by the RNLI.

Her debut album Dusk is "an incredibly strong, top drawer album that packs a punch with every song" available on Spotify and all other good interweb streaming platforms, as well as the EP, Long Story Short.
