Marie-Claire Berreen at Worcester Music Festival
Marie-Claire Berreen: "A superb original sound, muscular and dynamic, yet capable of great delicacy...a blend of folk and classical, and some truly haunting, mesmeric songs. Contemporary acoustic folk music does not get much better than this"
Born and raised in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, Marie-Claire Berreen has been writing songs since she was a little girl. With a range of influences including Nick Drake, Lisa Hannigan, Eddi Reader, Elbow, Tori Amos and Ray LaMontagne, the former choirgirl intertwines classical, folk, country and acoustic roots styles to create a pure and unique sound. She released her debut album ‘Box and Ribbon’ in 2012.
She regularly performs live with her band including long-time collaborator and writing partner Steven Wattison, Peter Jennings-Bates, Dan Slade and Glenn Louis Pettit.
"Marie-Claire's voice is like sunshine brightening the sky. You can't help but feel the warmth from her words and they leave you feeling sun kissed." (Music Junkie Press)
