‘Out of the far corners of Warwickshire came Daisybell, a songwriter from the north, a harmony specialist from the south and a multi-instrumentalist from the east.  They share a love of traditional folk music, home cooked food and Joe Browns fashion.  Since their first rehearsal in February 2016, Daisybell have headlined at folk clubs in Nuneaton, Atherstone, Bedworth and Warwick as well as venturing to the wilds of Leicestershire and Oxfordshire. The original songs, traditional arrangements and occasional quirky covers are performed by Katherine Fear on stringy things, Ginny White on tappy stuff and Anya Fay on tooty tunes.’
