Burd Ellen (UK)

Burd Ellen (solo)

We’re very excited to welcome the brand new project Burd Ellen to Fanø Free Folk Festival. Burd Ellen is a new solo project from Debbie Armour (who has worked with Green Ribbons, Alex Rex and the previous Fanø Free Folk Festival performer Alasdair Roberts) featuring Gayle Brogan (Pefkin, Barrett’s Dottled Beauty) and Lucy Duncan (Luki). The group uses traditional song to explore and evoke dark landscapes and deep stories. Innovative instrumentation, drone and sound-wash support detailed vocal work to create a unique sonic atmosphere. Their brilliant debut album ‘Silver Came’ was released earlier this year. The album explores women’s narratives in British folk song and investigates ideas of persistence, defiance, devotion and transformation. On Fanø Free Folk Festival Burd Ellen will perform as a duo with Debbie Armour and Gayle Brogan.
