Tilly's passionate and poignant song writing, played over delicate finger-
Tilly made her festival debut in 2013 at Maddy Prior’s Stepping Stones Festival in Cumbria, followed by playing the main stage of FolkEast in Suffolk at the age of 15. Since then she has opened for many of the UK's best folk acts including Mawkin, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, The Unthanks, Gilmore & Roberts, Dave Swarbrick, Ashley Hutchings & Ken Nicol, the brilliant guitarist Brooks Williams and the extraordinary Irish songwriter Mick Flannery. She features frequently on BBC Introducing and had songs featured by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 & by Tom Robinson on the BBC 6 Music Mixtape. She is a regular at FolkEast festival where she launched her EP “Painted Faces” in 2014 and has also appeared at Beverley Folk Festival, Bute Fest and many local festivals in East Anglia.
Tilly’s confident presence onstage, combined with her emotionally raw and honest stripped back songs, have captured audiences up and down the country.
"A rare treat in the contemporary folk scene, Tilly's music calls back to the dark psych folk of the 70s that drew heavily on trad sounds whilst unnerving the living heck out of everyone with its eerie beauty. Think Linda Perhacs, think Vashti Bunyan…with her soft, faltering voice and gently subversive instrumentation, a cult figure in the making” (Stephen Thomas, Folkroom Records, http://folkroom.co.uk/
“A great voice, an elegant way with words, emotional depth and a general graceful assurance. If she were to become a star it would do credit to stardom.” Richard Carrington, Cambridge Local Secrets
“Wow. She’s incredible. A tremendously exciting artist, regardless of her age.” BBC Introducing
