Nancy Kerr and the Sweet Visitor Band

Since her debut solo album, Sweet Visitor, arrived in late 2014, Nancy Kerr has emerged as one of the foremost composers of modern folk and social commentary songs in the British Isles.

A writer of rare style Kerr's music has drawn comparisons to William Blake in her reawakening of a radical folk mythology as a backdrop for contemporary narratives and has inspired some to call her “Folk's Poet Laureate”

Finding herself increasingly fascinated by the role of the environment as a character in music, literature, art and film, the compositions that make up her second release, Instar, explore the themes of human/ecological interaction that lie just beneath the surface of so many traditional folk songs.

A songwriter steeped in the tradition, but casting it anew.” Songlines 

Quite breathtakingly beautiful.” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2.
