Artist : Tilly Moses Band

A small but quite loud human who writes songs about love, heartbreak, environmentalism, politics, feminism, fens, and fighting ableism.

Tilly Moses is a mandolin player and singer songwriter from Suffolk, now based in York. She has been performing all over the country since the age of just 13, supporting some of the best-loved folk acts in the UK, and in 2017 released her long awaited debut album Alight & Adrift, to incredible critical acclaim. The album features the talents of many extraordinary musicians, including BBC Folk Award Winner Sam Kelly, Mercury Prize Nominee Kit Downes, and BBC Folk Award nominated band Mawkin’s James Delarre, amongst others.

And there's more to come! Tilly's second album will be released later this year, to great anticipation. The band play FolkEast hot off the back of recording the album, giving us one of the first insights of any audience as to what her next release will feature.

Tilly’s carefully crafted songs address subjects as diverse as climate change, gender inequality, apathy, love, and leaving home, and she delivers them with an extraordinarily powerful, passionate vocal style, and a colourful stage presence.

‘Tilly possesses an uncanny ability to communicate her messages and narratives with total conviction and an immediacy and intellectual as well as emotional depth.’
