2015 was a breathless year for Bella Hardy which saw the release of her seventh solo album, With The Dawn, to great critical acclaim. A summer of opening appearances across the UK and Ireland for Grammy Award winning Mary Chapin Carpenter was topped off by a main stage performance at the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival and from there followed a fantastic headlining tour in the autumn.

Now she heads out in the spring of 2016 for a selection of special, scaled back performances across the UK. Performing as a trio with regular stage companions Anna Massie (Blazin' Fiddles) and Tom Gibbs, this is a rare opportunity to hear Bella’s stunning compositions in the more intimate setting.

“Ultimately, what Hardy has done here is make a folk album for people who don't normally like folk music.  In doing so, it's both a credit to her and the genre.” - Q Magazine

“A triumph of folk art-pop”

“...the 6Music market surely beckons for Bella. As well as reaffirming her status as a shining star in the folk scene’s firmament, With The Dawn feels like a game-changer”

“Bravely personal diary of a touring folk singer... never since Paul Simon’s Homeward Bound has the life of a touring folk singer sounded quite so angst-ridden”
The Guardian
