Zoe Mulford with Tom Kitching

Monday 23rd April 2018 Zoe Mulford charms audiences with powerful, story-driven songwriting, an engaging stage presence, and an unlaboured vocal style that draws comparisons to Joan Baez. She backs her voice with guitar or claw-hammer banjo, drawing on the traditional music of Appalachia and the British Isles and stealing a few pages from the American Songbook to create music that feels both comfortably lived-in and sparklingly fresh. Her forthcoming fifth album, Small Brown Birds, centres on a new collaboration with English fiddler and mandolinist Tom Kitching. The songs trace a progression from winter to spring, with a message of resilience, community, and hope in times of trouble. With tracks such as “The President Sang Amazing Grace,” “Answer the Knock at the Door,” and “Zillionaire” chiming with current headlines, the album reached #1 on the Folk-DJ chart in the month of its US release. Raised near Philadelphia, Zoe took up the guitar and fell in love with the banjo during a twelve-year stint in Durham, North Carolina. Four years in Washington, DC introduced her to the community of contemporary songwriters, including her label-mates at the Azalea City Recordings cooperative. In 2006, she moved to the north of England. She now divides her time between Philadelphia, PA and Manchester, UK and tours on both sides of the Atlantic. A past Kerrville Newfolk finalist and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist, Zoe has had work published in Sing Out! Magazine and covered by other artists, including Rhiannon Giddens (with Gaelwynd) and John Roberts & Tony Barrand in their "Nowell Sing We Clear" Christmas review. 'Froots' magazine described her work as "supremely evocative and sometimes cheekily humorous". Tom Kitching is one of England's busiest fiddle players, with 1400 gigs performed in twelve years, a dozen studio albums, and a whole raft of session credits. Fiddler in BBC folk-award nominated band 'Pilgrims' Way', Tom has been described by Mike Harding as 'One of the best English fiddle players ever', and by the Sunday Express as having performed "The most beautiful instrumental playing of the year." on his ground-breaking and acclaimed 'Interloper' album. Zoe and Tom's collaboration brings together the best of two worlds. Contemporary songs with roots deep in the tradition. The best of American and English folk in harness together, combining sparkling vocals with fine instrumental accompaniment. All with a wit and humour that fits on everything from a folk club floor to a festival stage. http://zoemulford.com/ www.tomkitching.co.uk
