We’re excited to be working with Polly Paulusma and Annie Dressner for the first time.

Polly Paulusma and Annie Dressner became friends after meeting at the Cambridge Folk Festival.

Paulusma’s 2004 debut Scissors In My Pocket earned her critical acclaim and support slots with Bob Dylan. Fourth album Pivot is being released a song a month.

Dressner, three albums in, has received recognition and BBC radio play since arriving in UK from NYC in 2011. Shire Folk said of her: ‘One of the freshest and most enjoyable releases of 2018.’ Her new album will be released in spring 2020.

In this special co-headline evening, these formidable songwriters and friends support one another to present heart-felt acoustic music, songwriting and harmonies.
