It looks like 2019 is going to be a big year for Manchester-based folk artist Chloe Foy. Hotly tipped by everyone from the BBC’s Steve Lamacq to NPR Radio’s Bob Boilen, she’s quickly amassing a global following of fans. Listen to her music, and it’s not hard to see why. Taking inspiration from the classical world as well as folk and indie, Chloe’s artfully-constructed songs and striking voice possess an irresistible charm.
The same is true of Chloe’s live shows. Having spent the summer of 2018 touring in support of Jesca hoop as well as performing headline shows at the likes of SXSW, she’s been doggedly honing her craft and winning rich praise as a result. Currently on her first ever UK headline tour, she’ll be stopping at The Castle on the 6 April, where she’ll be supported by Katie O’Malley and Sun, Moon & Talia.
With a feeling that she’ll outgrow stages such as these in the very near future, you better not skip this one!
