Bringing outstanding musicianship and a deep understanding of tradition, Lucy’s sensitive playing combines perfectly with Rosie’s voice, skilfully lifting each song. Together Rosie Hood & Lucy Huzzard perform re-workings of traditional English songs as well as original material, touching on politics, struggle, women’s voices and unheard stories.
