Part pop, part blues, part folk and all-original, she excels at defying definition: the songs vary from delicate strummed strings and soaring melodies to gritty, growly piano power chords and everything in between, and her lyrics, ranging from gently poetic to downright obscure but always immensely powerful, give you food for thought and stay with you long after the first listen.

Lincoln Inspired Quiz Night

Wednesday 4th December
Food available
Tickets £2 per person minimum of 2 persons per team

Lincoln Inspired: The First Edition was a fantastic success in 2013. It contained all the elements we had hoped to include, like books, art, comedy, theatre, music, conversation, stuff for schools and advice for aspiring writers, and a few things we didn’t anticipate (like a Dalek). We’ve briefly taken stock, and we are moving full steam ahead to Lincoln Inspired: The Second Festival.

From the outset we decided not to go down the traditional funding route for this kind of event. Instead we’ve raised the money to put it on ourselves, in partnership with generous individuals and organisations from Lincoln and beyond. We firmly believe that on our own we can’t do a lot, but if everyone gets together and gives what they can – even as little as a few pennies or a fiver – we can achieve a lot. Email us at hello@lincolninspired.co.uk to find out how you can help us and don’t forget you can also help support us with a donation.
