A singer and harpist will perform in Suffolk next week in support of her fourth solo album, which is released this week.
Rachel Newton, who was voted BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Musician of the Year in 2017, will head to Haverhill Arts Centre on Sunday, October 7.
Her new album, entitled West, released on September 28, is a completely solo project featuring her voice and acoustic and electro, with no guest musicians.
The album was recorded in June at Rachel’s late grandparents’ house in Wester Ross in the north-west Highlands of Scotland, and the spectacular views of the landscape from the house influenced the music.
Rachel released solo albums The Shadow Side in 2012, Changeling in 2014 and Here’s My Heart Come Take It in 2016, which was shortlisted for the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award 2017.
