FATEA magazine’s “Female Artist of the Year” 2022,  Singer/Songwriter Hannah Scott will be making a welcome return home to her Suffolk roots in April 2024 with a gig at the Canopy Theatre in Beccles.
Hannah Scott
Her work has been supported by Bob Harris and Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2 and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 and has been featured in the hit TV series Grey’s Anatomy. She has also been featured by MOJO magazine and in The Guardian. As well as headlining her own shows Hannah has opened for many artists including Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Madeline Peyroux and 10cc.

Her most recent albums, “Pieces Of The Night” (2018) and “Drawn To Darkness” (2021) feature honest, meticulously crafted, songs about the human condition and were both critically well-received. Her 2023 EP “Ancient Lights” made big waves, resulting in higher profile gigs, festival appearances and further radio coverage across the BBC, including the Mark Radcliffe Folk Show on BBC Radio 2.

The FATEA recognition was well deserved and long overdue for one of the UK’s finest lyricists (with perfect melodies to match); she is also an excellent performer, singer and musician and all these elements come together so brilliantly. Hannah is currently hard at work recording her next album, due for release later this year.

This will be her sixth show for Martello and her fifth visit to the Canopy Theatre and you can expect to hear previews of new songs as well as favourites from her catalogue of exceptional songs.

Support comes Ross Burkitt and Ali Ward, a long-standing partnership who hail from the Bawdsey Peninsula in Suffolk. They play a beguiling mix of original, contemporary and traditional acoustic music, featuring tight vocal harmonies and beautifully played arrangements of well chosen songs.

Ross is an accomplished guitarist and singer and Ali adds vocals and ethereal flute to the mix. They have been regular performers in East Anglia for many years and this will be their fourth appearance at the Canopy Theatre, having played at the Beccles Acoustic Music Day in 2018, supported Honey & The Bear in 2021 and as one half of a double bill with Mack & Wood in 2022.

Tickets are £12, available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/martello-promotions
