Interview with Katy Rose Bennett
Katy Rose Bennett is a folk singer and choir leader. She’s been writing songs and making music for over 20 years, and has 6 albums to her name. During the 2021 pandemic she decided to make her first a cappella solo album. ‘Alone On A Hill’ is a striking and comforting collection of songs. The album finds the perfect balance between Katy’s intimate, lyrical songwriting and some playful, imaginative and colourful vocal textures.
- I’m heading out on a UK tour playing solo support for Danny George Wilson in April;
- I’m collaborating with Manchester’s The Sunday Boys, writing a newly commissioned pieced and a curating a performance at Bury Pride on April 23rd – that’s gonna be beautiful!
- I’m performing the whole of Alone On A Hill live with my brilliant a cappella group The Frankley Beeches at Cecil Sharp House on May 11th. We’re only doing a couple of these gigs this year and I think it should be pretty special.
