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.

Here are some live videos from the evening:

Thanks to local photographer Ian Edwards for some excellent photos from the evening. They can be seen at his website: http://ianedwardsphotography.zenfolio.com

I also recently performed a special acoustic set at Frank’s Bar on Bedford Street who are hosting live music on Wednesday and Sundayevenings.  It’s a lovely intimate setting, also with great food, and provided a nice opportunity for me to play a mixture of original songs as well as tracks by artists I admire including Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, and also some indie favourites by the likes of Arctic Monkeys and New Order. The next acoustic session I am playing there is Sunday, October 29th. Live music starts around 8pm

This weekend is the inaugural Deepdale Festival and I’m really looking forward to performing Sunday at 12pm on the Brick Barn Stage.  In a beautiful North Norfolk setting and with an emphasis on showcasing all the wonderful local talent the area has to offer, the line up for the full weekend has now been announced.

There is more information on the festival here on the All Things Norfolk website:

Next month I am really proud to be part of Oxjam Norwich and will be playing at the Karma Kafe on Saturday 21st at 5pm.  The full line up has also just been announced and as well as Karma Kafe, there will be live music at various venues across the city including The Birdcage, The Mash Tun and Rumsey Wells and later on a funk and soul afterparty.  Full details are here: https://www.facebook.com/norwichoxjam/

At OPEN Norwich on Thursday 12th October there will be a fundraising gig in aid of Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind with the aim of giving young artists a chance to perform and help raise money and awareness for the hugely important issue of mental health.  Breeze is among the performers on the evening and also on the line up is indie folk duo Red Dear, singer songwriter Ellie Bea and the dark pop of the excellent Hydra Lerna. 

The event is called Landscapes of the Mind and earlier on, between 4.30-6.30pm in the OPEN Club Room, a digital workshop for 11-18 year olds is also being run in partnership with the Millennium Library.  Based on celebrity culture, the free workshop aims to discuss celebrity culture and its impact on well being. It will provide an opportunity to write, perform, film and edit your own spoken word performance.  Organiser Katharine Lyons Burke hopes to organise more events for young people in the future. For more information on the gig and workshop visit here:

Grapevine for Music have continued to bring quality acoustic, folk and Americana music to the Guildhall.  Also on October 12th Portland-based songwriter John Craigie will be performing as part of his first UK tour following the release of his new album No Rain, No Rose earlier in the year 

Musically comparable to legendary songwriter John Prine, Craigie has become renowned as one of the best storytellers of our time.  The vagabond troubadour has charmed audiences in all 50 US states and throughout Europe, with a DIY spirit seldom seen these days. 

While touring solo and with the likes of Jack Johnson and Todd Snider, Craigie has taken the stage at festivals; sold out venues, intimate house concerts, centre camp at Burning Man and Gregory Alan Isakov’s farm.  Craigie’s true home is on the road, playing and singing and telling stories to everyone who wants to listen.

There is excellent local support from Yve Mary B and guitarist Mark Howes who will be starting the evening with sets of soulful, bluesy Americana and Country/Folk.

  • Fun and Free Community Singing Sessions to Boost Wellbeing

    Did you know that singing is scientifically proven to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and release endorphins? Group singing also builds a sense of community and boosts your confidence and wellbeing.

    Music and singing has always been there for me; during these past few tough months it has particularly provided a real release and escape from the difficult time we have all faced.

    During these past two years, many of us have struggled with feelings of isolation and loneliness, and as a performing songwriter and music tutor who thrives on the energy of an audience and enjoys the interaction with my students, I have found it really challenging. Despite continuing to find alternative ways to perform my music online and teach my music lessons since March 2020 via Zoom, it was very strange not seeing others for a very long time.

  • One in the Crowd, New Charity Song for Safe Rescue for Dogs

    As some of you know, last year I wrote a fundraising single for Norwich community station Future Radio, This Fine City - a celebration of Norwich and also a message of hope with us all coming together to get through this challenging and unprecedented time. It felt very rewarding that it was received so well, gaining radio airplay and local media coverage - including being featured here in an article I wrote for All Things Norfolk - whilst, more importantly, raising funds to help Future find a new city centre studio.

    It’s continued to be a challenging start to the year for us all; for myself, with the lack of gigs and festivals on the horizon, it can be hard to find inspiration. I wanted to start the year on a positive note; be creative, while also doing something good, and felt that I wanted to do something for another local charity. One in the Crowd is a new acoustic song in aid of Safe Rescue for Dogs, whose events I have previously attended. As a huge animal lover and dog walker - mostly to springer spaniel Wesley who was also my co-star in the video for From Afar, a single I wrote and recorded during the first lockdown - I know the joy and unconditional love that they bring into our lives.

  • Future Radio Fundraising Single “This Fine City” by Lisa Redford and Friends

    In her latest feature for All Things Norfolk, Lisa focuses on the exciting launch of her fundraising single in aid of Future Radio  "This Fine City" about Norwich and how we're all coming together znd overcoming this tough time.

    "I began volunteering at Future Radio in 2018, regularly hosting the Afternoon Session and also briefly covering NR Sounds which showcases bands and artists from Norwich and the surrounding areas of Norfolk and North Suffolk. It has been so rewarding and enjoyable to be part of the station - certainly been a real buzz broadcasting live to listeners and sharing my passion for music"

    "I am particularly drawn to its fantastic specialist music programming covering a mix of various genres including soul/Motown, electronica, Americana, film and TV soundtracks, drum and bass, reggae, hip hop, indie, rock/metal, afrobeat/world, as well as being a platform for anyone in Norwich with something to announce, promote or share. Its eclectic, BBC 6Music-style daytime playlist showcases new music from emerging artists and many shows have national and international listeners".
     
  • 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
