Fay Hield began singing in the lively music scene around the Famous Bacca Pipes Folk Club in Keighley.
She was instrumental in launching the Haworth Arts Festival and the Three's Company folk promotions organisation, and performed as half of a duo with Damien Barber.
She also formed the female a capella quartet The Witches Of Elswick.
In 2009 a new concert line-up with Rob Harbron (English Acoustic Collective) and Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead) was established, built around a striking repertoire of often obscure material.
In September 2010 she released her debut solo CD, Looking Glass.
See her live on Monday at the Cellars at Eastney. Tickets cost 12 on the door or 10 in advance from (023) 9282 6249.
