'Carolina Rain' with Joe from The Dreaming Spires https://youtu.be/T3-jJVRbTAA
It was a hectic but really fun weekend performing again at C2C Country to Country Festival at The O2. I saw lots of outstanding live music, an eclectic mix of Americana, folk, bluegrass and country and, as last year, there was such a lovely warm atmosphere and it was amazing to see how busy it was. Thanks so much to everyone who came along to my set at the Saloon and signing afterwards to say hi. Thanks also to excellent country music website W21 Music and Jeff G Photography for taking some great live shots. It was a real honour to be selected to play the pop-up stages for the second year running and exciting to have Radio 2‘s Bob Harris, who has really supported my music, invite the audience to listen to my set.
I’ve posted quite a few videos from my performance on my YouTube Channel www.youtube.com/lisaredfordmusic
Following on from last year, here’s another fun little highlights video I’ve put together with a clip of ‘Carolina Rain’ which was also recently featured on Amazing Radio in their all female playlist for International Women's Day
Here’s also a live video from my performance, singing original song ‘Never Was a Yesterday’
Also here's a fun a cappella video, singing ‘Be Around’ on the walk home from C2C in Greenwich Tunnel! https://youtu.be/iGJCov64KRQ
Another great part of playing C2C festival was getting to meet some of my fans and do some interviews with them for their blogs and channels. Here’s a fun interview video with French YouTube Channel L Teste:
Plus an interview with country music blog Six Shooter Country, chatting about playing the festival and my music inspirations:
Record Store Day April 18th
Looking ahead, and one of the music highlights of the month is Record Store Day, a great day on the third Saturday of each April celebrating independent records shops around the world. This year I’m due to play in Cambridge and among the participating stores in Norfolk are Soundclash, who had queues going along St Benedicts last year and Lewks in Downham Market who from 8am have an eclectic line up of live music. Check out www.recordstoreday.co.uk for a full list of events and for more information on the live music in Norfolk.
