Lisa Redford Unplugged - Norfolk Day

Norfolk Day will be upon us this Friday, 27th July and I am really excited to share this beautiful new music video from my incredibly talented student Breeze Redwine. Especially filmed for Norfolk Day and showcasing the stunning countryside of the county, it has already had a wonderful response and been selected as the official song for the occasion. The track is "Trust"  an original song written by myself and Breeze which is also the title track of her debut EP. Everyone involved in the video is from Norfolk, from the musicians to the video director-producer David McKenna, and the project was sponsored by Rushall-based Vincent’s Garage.

Some of the county’s most iconic landmarks feature in the video including including Thurne in the Norfolk Broads, Happisburgh Light House, Cromer Pier and The Waveney Valley.  

Here is the video on YouTube. Thank you for watching and commenting: https://youtu.be/ND062xy936Q

It has been nice to see some great press for the song and video already. Thank you to Simon Parkin at the EDP for the feature:

Also, the song has been made BBC Introducing Track of the Week and will be played every afternoon this week on Stephen Bumfrey’s show on Radio Norfolk! Breeze’s brand new single “We Can Be Legends” was also played on this weekend’s BBC Introducing and will be released on August 10 followed by an EP of the same title on August 24.

I am looking forward to being part of Norfolk Day myself with a special acoustic performance in the glorious setting of Norwich Cathedral on Friday afternoon. Full programme of the Cathedral’s events are here:

Summer Gigs and Festivals

It has been a very busy Summer already. I had so much fun performing a special acoustic concert in beautiful Pézenas, South of France with superb guitarist Luigi Notarangelo. 

I have posted some live videos on my YouTube channel and also on Instagram. Here is “Call Me” https://youtu.be/Y-0L9Xlzsc8

Following that I played a lovely headline concert for my friends in Burnham Deepdale as part of their monthly Sunday Sessions. Here is a cover of “Rocket Man” thanks to the audience for singing along! I will also be returning there for the excellent Deepdale Festival performing on Saturday 29th September

Festival season is in full swing and I enjoyed a beautiful sultry night playing Stradisphere Music Festival, in Stradbroke and it was lovely to meet the brilliant Mercury Music Prize winning Badly Drawn Boy ahead of his excellent headline set. It was also a joy to perform “Trust” and “Courage” with Breeze.

The following day I had a great time at Maverick Festival seeing some memorable performances and soaking up the always warm, friendly atmosphere. I also had a lot of fun performing a short set on the Jimmy Rodgers stage.

I also recently attended Latitude Festival for another amazing weekend of outstanding music, performances, theatre, comedy and more. I also got to be involved in the filming of the new Danny Boyle movie! More details, photos and video are at my Instagram: lisaredfordmusic and facebook: lisaredfordmusic.

Looking ahead, I’m excited for my next show when I will be returning to the lovely Reepham Festival for two solo acoustic performances over the weekend of August 11th and 12th. There’s a super line up, can’t wait to see acoustic duo Smith and Brewer and local artists Honey and the Bear and Mammal Not Fish.

  • 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

  • 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!
