Hilary Ward

Story Singer

hils

As with many Singers and Musicians there was a period of about 20 years when I'd 'lost' the need to sing, but now that I've found my voice again I cannot imagine life without song. Now every day I wake with a song in my head, sometimes one I actually know and occasionally one I don't particularly like.

Being a relative 'newbie' to the Folk Scene I am constantly amazed by the vast amount of talent and variety of songs that I hear wherever I go. I just wish I had more time (and memory) to learn songs quicker as there are so many wonderful Songwriters in the Folk world.

I'm drawn to songs which tell stories and my favourites deal with subjects close to my heart such as the joy of nature, the love of one's friends and family, the folly of war, losing one's memory and lost traditions.

I normally sing unaccompanied although occasionally a friend will accompany me if circumstances allow.

Dear Diary at Boars Bridge with Steve Robinson

My repertoire includes a variety of traditional and chorus songs in addition to songs from contemporary artists with subjects ranging from the sad to the hilarious.

Share the songs and be ready to laugh or shed a tear. Have some tissues handy anyway, just in case…
