We welcome Elfin Bow
Described by Shindig Magazine as, ‘lyrically astute and melodically inventive,’
Elfin Bow’s music has a timeless, ancient feel, like she has been here before. Deeply rooted in the life and nature that surround her, her self-penned folk songs and stories weave a tapestry that combine mysterious characters, myths and legends, with the heartache and adventure of real life.
Liverpool born, now living next door to a 12th Century castle on a hilltop in North wales, Elfin‘s songs and stage presence exude colour, charisma and a gentle charm.
A strict 1970’s church upbringing that frowned upon any kind of pop music, was the catalyst for her ‘quiet rebellion,’ and, as a child, she saved her pocket money to buy her own radio to listen to covertly under the covers. The discovery of trailblazers like PJ Harvey, Tori Amos and Bjork flung the door wide open for her to find her own voice.
‘A rising star of the modern folk world’ (Fatea Magazine)
Elfin’s musical community supported two successful crowdfunding campaigns enabling both the release of her debut album, launched with a live session on BBC Radio Wales, and her version of Sandy Denny’s Who Knows Where the Time Goes with the Fruits de Mer Record label, recorded with the Scottish Session Symphony Orchestra.
In stage outfits that interpret her lyrics, Elfin invites moments of musical magic in venues big and small; a tin shed, living rooms, art galleries and bookshops have been no less memorable than Theatr Clwyd, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room, the Epstein Theatre and the Bridgewater Hall.
She has performed alongside folk legends, Bonnie Dobson, Robin Williamson and Chris Wood and had airplay on BBC 6 Music (Gideon Coe) and BBC Radio Wales (Wynne Evans, Adam Walton.)
