Lisa Redford Unplugged - Headlining in Norwich Photo by Claudia Taveira

Hey everyone, hope you all had a lovely summer and have even managed to enjoy the little indian summer we’ve just had in Norfolk. I had a great time playing festivals and there are some live videos from them below. I’m really excited to be sharing the brand new music video for my song ‘Be Around’ which was filmed in Norfolk 


I am also delighted to announce a headline Norwich show at The Bicycle Shop in December. I love playing this lovely venue and last time it was sold out, so I hope to see some more Norwich fans to share what should be a very special evening

New Music Video ‘Be Around’ filmed in Norfolk

My album ‘Slipstream’ was recently reissued by Proper Distribution and from it here’s a new video for the song ‘Be Around’ filmed this summer on the coast on one of our glorious warm days!

Be Around Official Music Video

The video was made by hugely talented local film maker and photographer Claudia Taveira Photography. We’ve collaborated on a few projects this past year and she has filmed many lovely videos and shot photo shoots in the area. Norfolk provides many wonderful locations and here’s some of the other videos she’s filmed:

Festival Review & Live Festival Videos

Had a great time in August playing at Brownstock Festival in Essex and Weyfest in Surrey. The fun festival weekend was topped off by an excellent set by closing headliners Squeeze, bringing back fond memories from one of my first major gigs, supporting Glenn Tilbrook at Norwich Arts Centre! 

Thanks to Festivals for All for this lovely review of my set at Brownstock

Here’s also some live videos from both festivals:

And thanks to Mick for filming this Tom Petty cover ‘I Won’t Back Down’ 

Norwich Sound and Vision This Week

This week Norwich Sound and Vision comes to Norwich bringing 3 days of live music in venues across the city and it’s well worth going along to. I've been very fortunate to have been involved, performing one of the showcase evenings at the Bicycle Shop and also playing at a PRS opening reception and believe it's a truly exciting and vibrant festival that really puts Norwich on the UK music map. 

During the festival there's a great atmosphere and I've seen some amazing live performances at Norwich Arts Centre, Open, Olives, the Bicycle Shop and other key venues across the city. Not only is there the high quality of eclectic live music to see, during the day there’s also the conference itself. I've really enjoyed the excellent and relevant panel discussions from trusted and respected members of the music industry, some coming from around the world. I've really felt inspired and motivated after hearing what they've advised and had to say about the industry. 

Importantly, the festival also provides a major opportunity for media, artists, labels, filmmakers, writers and anyone involved in a creative industry to all meet and network. I've made connections with bloggers and radio from attending the festival and as a musician and music lover Sound and Vision has become one of the essential dates in the music calendar. - Thursday October 9th - Saturday October 11th

I’ve recently released a new compilation which is available at my Bandcamp page The tracks are a mixture of acoustic love songs (some happy, some bittersweet!) from my studio albums plus some live studio versions. Thanks so much to those who have already purchased.

    It’s already been a busy and creative year.  In my music writer role I had an amazing and inspiring time at the AmericanaFestUK in London which I was covering for iSing Magazine, a digital magazine for vocalists and excellent resource for singers, singing teachers and those in the music industry.  Organised by the AMA-UK, AmericanaFestUK celebrates the flourishing Americana music scene with a daytime conference, an evening of artist showcases and an illustrious Awards ceremony.

    As an Americana artist and member of The AMA-UK myself, it is so great that the association represents and supports American roots music and artists in the UK.  The conference drew major artists including Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Mary Gauthier and Squeeze’s Chris Difford. The Stellar awards show at the historic Hackney Empire hosted by Bob Harris featured some incredible performances including lifetime achievement winner Robert Plant and Trailblazer Award winners Mumford and Sons.

    I had a great time playing two successive Americana nights in Norwich last week. I performed at the historic Guildhall in the city centre for Grapevine for Music, who host regular gigs showcasing quality folk, Americana and country artists. Also performing were superb Norfolk singer-songwriter Jake Morrell, now based in London and fresh from recording in Nashville, and also SJ and the flying Pigs from Cambridge, who create a lovely dreamy sound with acoustic guitar, banjo and fiddle.

    I had a lovely time performing at the inaugural Deepdale Festival last month.  In a beautiful North Norfolk setting, and with glorious weather, the weekend showcased all the wonderful local talent the area has to offer. There was a friendly, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and it was a lot of fun having drummer Terry Anderson from The Mojo Preachers join me impromptu during my set.  

    Congratulations to Jason Borthwick and Chris Haycock for a successful festival, here’s to next year! 

  • Lisa Redford Unplugged : Deepdale to Oxjam

    I have had a busy time recently playing some great local gigs and enjoyed a fun evening of live music last month at The Garage, Norwich celebrating the release of my student Breeze Redwine’s debut EP ‘Trust’ which has received lots of airplay on BBC Introducing as well as many other radio stations across the world. 

    There was a really supportive and enthusiastic audience for Breeze who shone on stage and demonstrated her amazing versatility as an artist.  She performed original tracks, as well as favourite songs and duets with myself and local songwriters Kolin Durier and Grant Ley who also performed sets on the night.

  • Festivals - Lisa Redford Unplugged

    I had a lovely time performing two acoustic sets at Reepham Festival this month. It was my first time playing the festival and there was such a warm, friendly, laid back atmosphere.  

    Celebrating its 10th anniversary, and expanding to two days, the line up this year had its usual eclectic mix of established names and independent artists. There were great energetic sets by headliners, legendary 2-Toners The Beat, who I have seen before at Reload festival, and powerful rock band Walkway, who have supported The Darkness and Status Quo, and the excellent Jeramiah Ferrair from Leigh near Manchester, who blend rock, ska, funk, reggae and calypso in a refreshingly original way.
