Folklore presents… MARA SIMPSON + OUR MAN IN THE FIELD

She’s captivated audiences around the world with her soulful melodies, rich lyricism, unassuming charm and wicked laugh.

The songwriting is stunning.’
Growing up between England and East Africa, she’s played stages and festivals across Germany, New Zealand and the UK where she lives.
OUR MAN IN THE FIELD
Our Man in The Field writes musical snapshots from the lives he’s observed or the life he’s lead. Influences include the open spaces of the North East Coast and the raw energy overflowing into London’s sky line, and all the people in between.
