Two stunning female singer songwriters favoured and played by Whispering Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2, Kelly Oliver and Norwich based Lisa Redford are on the same bill on Monday 29th February, in an unexpected change of line up caused by the ill health of Marina Florance. Lisa Redford, a well known voice in our fine city partly thanks to her popular respected regular music feature in the EDP, has generously stepped into the breach to provide Kelly Oliver's only date in East Anglia at the Bicycle Shop with a wonderful opening set.

Kelly's 18 date national tour has been garnering great reviews "Kelly Oliver is a treasured young folk singer equipped with the three tangible essentials of great songs, beautiful vocals and fine playing. However the finishing touch which makes Kelly such a special talent is that innate ability to captivate a listener’s attention, and for an hour tonight a privileged gathering succumbed to the charm of her artistry." Three Chords and the Truth.

The album itself is rumoured to be reviewed in the Sunday Times Culture Magazine this coming Sunday 6th and has been gathering a joyous reaction and Album of the Week and Month from various music blogs and radio stations "Kelly Oliver writes songs that touch you deep inside, cause eyes to water and hearts to rise. The songs on ‘Bedlam’ will remain by your side long after the album has finished" Tim Carroll Folkwords. "One of the first significant folk releases out of the blocks in 2016....this album is a triumph. It’s inevitable success is thoroughly deserved" Rob Bridge Redwood. "What an absolute treat the new album from Kelly Oliver. It is at once bouncy, thoughtful, familiar (to those of us who have listened to Kelly's previous work) and different. The whole has a feeling of freshness and innovation with Kelly's beautiful and distinctive voice and her interesting story telling" Liz Franklin

Headliner Kelly Oliver whom Bob praises as a 'an emerging voice in British Folk' has also said, after one of her four plays on his Radio 2 show, that she has a 'beautiful, pure voice' is on her national headline tour for Bedlam, her second album, which is released on Sunday 6th March (Mothering Sunday).  The Sunday Times praised Kelly's live performance saying it was 'a fine set, Kelly Oliver blends traditional values with bold indie pop'.

Lisa Redford has gained much praise for her Americana/Folk songs and is regarded as "one of our finest singer/songwriters" by Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 who has had Lisa into his Radio 2 show twice for a live session, and Maverick Magazine had this to say, in addition to giving her a 4* review "In a sea of smart female singer-songwriters, Lisa Redford is an admiral.' Glenn Tilbrook is a fan “Brilliant! Lisa has a great voice”and Americana UK had this to add“There is a warmth and welcoming vibe to Redford’s music that really is difficult to resist”. Lisa is about to release an EP so there might be a chance to hear her much anticipated new material.

Don't miss this exciting and unique opportunity to see two talented artists on the same bill who perform warm, engaging and accessible songs. The Bicycle Shop is hosting this event Monday 29th Feb, and it's a gorgeous intimate venue.

  • Lisa Redford - From Afar

    All Things Norfolk business member, singer-songwriter and music tutor Lisa Redford has written and recorded a brand new song at home during the lockdown "From Afar"

    Lisa got her inspiration for writing this song when walking in her local area in Norwich and seeing a poster in a window which said "know you are loved from afar" . The song is all about missing loved ones but knowing that we can still love and care from them "From Afar" until we meet again. Once the song was written Lisa then recorded an acoustic version of it from her home studio. 

    We highly recommend that you take a listen to "From Afar" by visiting https://lisaredford.bandcamp.com/track/from-afar  and support this talented local artist by purchasing the song digitally for £1 . You can also view the video by visiting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfnukKmLcqc

  • Young musicians re-live Mozart with a classical weekend in North Norfolk

    On Friday 28 February, over 275 children from 8 local schools attended open rehearsals at the Auden Theatre in Holt.

    The children, aged between 7 and 12 were invited to hear members of the London Mozart Players performing pieces in rehearsal, ahead of their public performance later that evening. Amongst the programme was Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 4 performed by horn player Ben Goldscheider, who was the winner of Brass Section of the BBC Young Musician of the Year winner 2016, when he was 18 years old. 

    Saturday (29th) saw over 80 young brass, strings and woodwind musicians taking in a free workshop to perform as an orchestra. For the workshop, specialist music tutor Helen Stowell of the Norfolk Music Service specially arranged a range of pieces from Mozart’s Horn Concerto to Havana, by Camilla Cabello. For many of these young musicians, this was their very first ensemble performance and a unique moment to play great orchestral pieces with other musicians.

  • Lisa Redford - Looking forward to Spring

    It has been a very busy and creative start to the year and I'm really looking forward to playing some lovely local gigs this month and throughout spring. These include some brand new live music nights that are happening in Norwich showcasing the wealth of talented local artists from Norfolk. 

    Common People at OPEN Norwich ~ Friday February 21st 

    My next gig is a really special one. As well as performing my own material, I love to perform many of my favourite songs from different genres. I'm looking forward to be playing an acoustic set at OPEN Norwich next weekend as part of a special 90's music charity night of Britpop, indie and dance from the team behind Common People. Expect some surprise 90's favourites in my set!

  • Lisa Redford - I Just Can't Forget

    It has been a little while since my last All Things Norfolk column. I had a really busy summer playing lots of festivals in the area and further afield. Here in Norfolk I really enjoyed performing at the first F-19 festival, a major new music festival in Feltwell at the stunning St Mary’s Church; all profits from the festival went towards the upkeep of this stunning medieval building.

    I was also part of a brilliant line-up for The Waterfront Sessions. It was an all day promoted by The Tilting Sky celebrating some of the regions finest country and Americana artists by the riverside at Norwich Waterfront and it really showcased the wealth of talent here.

    In July I also released a single Let Go - the second from my latest EP Edge of Love. It has been receiving some lovely airplay on many stations and shows including BBC Introducing Norfolk. Edge of Love has continued to get great reviews, so much so that I’m excited to be releasing a new single I Just Can’t Forget next month. The ballad, like all of my songs, comes from the heart and has a more soulful country sound with harmonies, piano, pedal steel acoustic and electric guitar

    It features terrific local musicians: The Vagaband’s Jose McGill - who also produced the EP - plus Mark Howes from local blues duo Dove and Boweevil and Mikey Shaw on drums. The single has already been performed live in session for Whispering Bob TV’s Under the Apple Tree - intimate live acoustic sessions recorded in the home studio of legendary BBC broadcaster Bob Harris - certainly one of the highlights of my career so far!

  • Lisa Redford- Festivals

    It has been a very busy and exciting time as my new EP Edge of Love - recorded and mastered in Norwich and featuring a whole host of local talent - is now released worldwide!

    I have been blown away by the wonderful airplay and reviews I have received including 4 stars in national music magazines Maverick and RnR. The title track also features on the excellent Un-Herd cover mount CD which comes with the May/June issue of RnR, in shops now.

    I have been interviewed for a few local glossy publications - including Norwich Resident Magazine, KL Magazine and Norfolk Magazine - as well as had airplay on BBC Radio Norfolk and Suffolk, most recently a live acoustic session for Drive Time on BBC Radio Suffolk with Stephen Foster.
