Tilly Dalglish at Stepping Stones

Tilly DalglishMay bank holiday weekend sees the Stepping Stones Festival build on the success of last year's event with a ceilidh, workshops, open mic sessions and afternoon and evening concerts that feature Karine Polwart, Merry Hell and Martin Carthy amongst many others.  There'll also be an appearance or several from the old girl herself, Maddy Prior.  North West Folk may be in bother after that last sentence. At the other end of the age spectrum, Tilly Dalglish makes her festival debut.

Tilly Dalglish is a 15 year old singer songwriter born in Kendal, Cumbria in 1998 but who has grown up in Suffolk. In 2011, at the age of 13, Tilly began writing her own songs and taught herself to play the mandolin as an accompaniment. Her song writing and delivery demonstrate an emotional maturity beyond her years and combine with a delicate finger picking style on the mandolin to produce poignant, passionate songs.

This talent was soon spotted by Cambridge Folk Club where she first performed on her 14th birthday. Since then she has played at a number of other venues around East Anglia, most recently supporting the renowned American folk songstress Jess Klein on tour.

Stepping Stones festival runs from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th May. Tilly will be playing at the Howard Arms in Brampton on the Sunday afternoon session between 4 and 7pm.
