Lisa Redford Unplugged - Norfolk Day

Norfolk Day will be upon us this Friday, 27th July and I am really excited to share this beautiful new music video from my incredibly talented student Breeze Redwine. Especially filmed for Norfolk Day and showcasing the stunning countryside of the county, it has already had a wonderful response and been selected as the official song for the occasion. The track is "Trust"  an original song written by myself and Breeze which is also the title track of her debut EP. Everyone involved in the video is from Norfolk, from the musicians to the video director-producer David McKenna, and the project was sponsored by Rushall-based Vincent’s Garage.

Some of the county’s most iconic landmarks feature in the video including including Thurne in the Norfolk Broads, Happisburgh Light House, Cromer Pier and The Waveney Valley.  

Here is the video on YouTube. Thank you for watching and commenting: https://youtu.be/ND062xy936Q

It has been nice to see some great press for the song and video already. Thank you to Simon Parkin at the EDP for the feature:

Also, the song has been made BBC Introducing Track of the Week and will be played every afternoon this week on Stephen Bumfrey’s show on Radio Norfolk! Breeze’s brand new single “We Can Be Legends” was also played on this weekend’s BBC Introducing and will be released on August 10 followed by an EP of the same title on August 24.

I am looking forward to being part of Norfolk Day myself with a special acoustic performance in the glorious setting of Norwich Cathedral on Friday afternoon. Full programme of the Cathedral’s events are here:

Summer Gigs and Festivals

It has been a very busy Summer already. I had so much fun performing a special acoustic concert in beautiful Pézenas, South of France with superb guitarist Luigi Notarangelo. 

I have posted some live videos on my YouTube channel and also on Instagram. Here is “Call Me” https://youtu.be/Y-0L9Xlzsc8

Following that I played a lovely headline concert for my friends in Burnham Deepdale as part of their monthly Sunday Sessions. Here is a cover of “Rocket Man” thanks to the audience for singing along! I will also be returning there for the excellent Deepdale Festival performing on Saturday 29th September

Festival season is in full swing and I enjoyed a beautiful sultry night playing Stradisphere Music Festival, in Stradbroke and it was lovely to meet the brilliant Mercury Music Prize winning Badly Drawn Boy ahead of his excellent headline set. It was also a joy to perform “Trust” and “Courage” with Breeze.

The following day I had a great time at Maverick Festival seeing some memorable performances and soaking up the always warm, friendly atmosphere. I also had a lot of fun performing a short set on the Jimmy Rodgers stage.

I also recently attended Latitude Festival for another amazing weekend of outstanding music, performances, theatre, comedy and more. I also got to be involved in the filming of the new Danny Boyle movie! More details, photos and video are at my Instagram: lisaredfordmusic and facebook: lisaredfordmusic.

Looking ahead, I’m excited for my next show when I will be returning to the lovely Reepham Festival for two solo acoustic performances over the weekend of August 11th and 12th. There’s a super line up, can’t wait to see acoustic duo Smith and Brewer and local artists Honey and the Bear and Mammal Not Fish.

    It has been a very busy and exciting time as my new EP Edge of Love - recorded and mastered in Norwich and featuring a whole host of local talent - is now released worldwide!

    I have been blown away by the wonderful airplay and reviews I have received including 4 stars in national music magazines Maverick and RnR. The title track also features on the excellent Un-Herd cover mount CD which comes with the May/June issue of RnR, in shops now.

    I have been interviewed for a few local glossy publications - including Norwich Resident Magazine, KL Magazine and Norfolk Magazine - as well as had airplay on BBC Radio Norfolk and Suffolk, most recently a live acoustic session for Drive Time on BBC Radio Suffolk with Stephen Foster. 

  • Lisa Redford Unplugged - Anything But Easy

    It’s been a little while since my last All Things Norfolk article as it has been a very busy time. Anything But Easy - the first single from my brand new EP “Edge of Love” - was released on 22nd February and I’ve been working really hard to promote it, doing radio and magazine interviews.  It has been wonderful to receive such a lovely response and so much airplay including many BBC Shows and various stations across the world.  I was also recently interviewed by Sam Day on BBC Radio Norfolk and chose my Norfolk Anthems (favourite songs!) as well as talked about the single. 

    It is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and also at my Bandcamp page:

  • Lisa Redford - Autumn

    I am really excited that the PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign for my next release is already at 86%! A huge thank you to all those of you who have pledged or shared the project. As an independent artist it really means a lot. 

    Recording for the new EP has just finished here in Norwich and it has been a really productive and exciting process. As mentioned, I am working with the super talented musician and producer José McGill – band-leader of the award-winning local band Vagaband – who has created some beautiful arrangements and played an array of instruments.

    There is also a host of other local musicians who have been involved. Noel Dashwood – from Norwich based folk trio Alden Patterson and Dashwood - has contributed his wonderful dobro and harmonies. We have performed live together in the area playing festivals such as Folk East in Suffolk and supporting Sarah Darling and Eliza Carthy at Norwich Waterfront and OPEN. He will be performing with his trio at Epic Studios on 22nd November opening for renowned folk artists Show of Hands.

  • Lisa Redford unplugged - I Just can't forget

    I’m really excited to share my new original song “I Just Can’t Forget” the first track from my second Whispering Bob TV Under The Apple Tree session. Curated by Bob Harris himself, Under the Apple Tree sessions are intimate performances recorded live in the studio of Whispering Bob Harris, which just happens to be situated under an apple tree. 

    It is always special catching up with Bob Harris and his son Miles Hyerscough-Harris - who beautifully records and films the sessions - and it was also a treat to be reunited with brilliant pedal steel player Alan Cook who played on my second album “Lost Again”
