Sophie Crawford and Ariana Brophy at The Harrison
Sophie Crawford is a North London based folk singer offering fresh and exciting interpretations of traditional songs accompanying herself on accordion, dulcimer and ukulele.
Sophie released her debut album ‘Silver Pin’ in November 2018 with cellist and composer Oliver Coates. She is recording her second album with the PRAH foundation in 2019. She was a 2016 New Roots finalist and tours regularly around the country.
Ariana Brophy is the songwriting equivalent of mulled wine; sweet, nostalgic, perfectly paired with a rainy evening and a fireplace. With vocal clarity that would suggest she has been singing a lifetime, Ariana’s listeners are invited to observe an unreserved and vulnerable portrait of the soul behind her lyrics and the stories that have shaped her.
Rhea March, of March Music Inc., warns audiences to ‘be prepared to feel everything Ariana feels’ as ‘her ability to authentically connect and illicit raw emotion from the listener is unparalleled.’ Ariana’s performances highlight strength in fragility and—with her balance of conversational humour and tales of human pain— prove that laughter can share a stage with tears.
