BUXTON musician Lucy Spraggan is through to the regional finals of a national competition.
Singer and songwriter Lucy has beaten off stiff competition to make it through to the regional finals of the Live and Unsigned competition, which will be held at The Willows, Manchester, on Sunday March 27 at 4pm.
Contestants at the regional finals battle it out for a place in the National Grand Final and the Live and Unsigned Festival which takes place at London’s O2 later in the year, when over £100,000 in prizes is up for grabs.
Lucy made her festival debut at the age of just ten, performing all her own material. Since then, her songwriting and singing has taken her across most of the northern hemisphere. Having been spotted playing at Manchester’s Pride Festival in 2009 by the organisers of Gaydays, a large festival in Florida, Lucy then embarked on a three-month tour, taking in almost all of the states in America and skimming the Mexico borders.
This summer she already has gigs lined up on the British festival scene in London, Sheffield and Manchester.
Influenced by Don Maclean and Kirsty McColl, Lucy’s current style of music is something she calls Fop, the melodic middle ground where pop and folk meet. To find out more about Lucy, visit www.lucyspraggan.com.
