A Platform for Ethnically and Culturally Inspired Music
Eve Telford is a traditional singer and a folk songwriter. Her traditional ballads are rooted in the singing styles of the old folk (farmers, nursemaids, spinners) who once sang them, while also being her own. She sings traditional Irish, Welsh, Scottish, and English songs, with a strong focus on Irish. She can sing in the Irish and Welsh languages. She sings both unaccompanied and accompanied by her partner, the great Irish singer and musician Jimmy Crowley. She and Jimmy Crowley are currently working on a selection of Child Ballads (songs collected by the folklorist Francis James Child), especially rare Irish versions.

Her songwriting takes inspiration from the great web of folklore, the natural world, and politics.
