Helen North

Local singer and songsmith Helen North is gaining a growing reputation for her skilfully turned lyrics and strongly visual songs. Described by a Mudcat fan as ‘Absolutely one of the best songwriters around, no question;' she has a beautiful, true voice, and a knowledge of musical forms which is evident in the breadth of styles in her song-writing.  Her 1st CD "Shifting Sands" draws on her years of experience working with boats and sailing and has captured the attention of other recording artists.  She has performed at the Faversham hop festival, Sandwich folk festival, and folk clubs from North London to Cornwall; able to have her audience in gales of laughter at one moment, and in rapt attention the next. In 2016 she collaborated with Kent musicians Alan Prosser and Sally Ironmonger to perform at local Kent theatres. She has been interviewed on BBC radio Kent Folk and was also delighted to perform a couple of her own songs playing the main stage at Towersy Folk festival as winner of their open mic competition. This talented lady is well worth catching
