The Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads are a four-piece female ensemble who enjoy singing low-pitched folk songs about love, despair, and dastardly boyfriends.

They bonded over maritime work songs and failed romances in the alto section of a sea shanty choir, deciding to form a girl-group during a long car ride to Cornwall in 2015. Since then, they have performed their spirited harmonies at festivals and venues in London and further afield, including Wilton’s Music Hall, the Southbank Centre, Fire in the Mountain festival, Folk East Festival and on board the Cutty Sark.

The Broads supply their repertoire of traditional stories with a very contemporary verve and energy, using old songs to fuel new takes on the lives of women both past and present.

“Young female quartet the Norfolk Broads are strong storytellers…Their close harmonies brought a witty feminist take to a well-curated set of tales of impotence, greedy landlords, and the joys of a single life.” ~ The Guardian
