BARLEY FOLK is back at the Barley Sheaf, Liskeard, on Wednesday with Nancy Wallace, a singer and musician hailing from Suffolk, but now firmly ensconced in East London.

She came to notice singing with the Memory Band, and features on the albums The Memory Band and Apron Strings. She now sits happily among the ranks of The Owl Service.

Her solo releases began with the critically acclaimed Young Hearts EP, songs from which have been included on both volumes of Tom Middleton's Crazy Covers albums, Paris Derniere and the Big Chill compilations.

Her debut full length album, Old Stories, was released in 2009 to very favourable reviews, garnering her a cover feature in fRoots magazine. Current projects include converting her spare room in order to finally record another album.

Nancy will be supported by Barley Folk residents Corncrow.

"Nancy Wallace makes some of the most wonderfully subtle modern folk around." The Word

Barley Folk is located in the upstairs room at the Barley Sheaf. Doors 8pm, live music from 8.30pm. Admission £7.
