Bridie Jackson

For:

The creation of new material

Newcastle’s Bridie Jackson and The Arbour are a quartet of folk-influenced musicians; creating works of haunting beauty, both sparse and detailed. With rich vocal harmonies and subtle string arrangements, they are led by Bridie’s remarkable voice and evocative wordplay, at once dark and playful, joyous and melancholic.
Having won the 2013 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition, and played live sessions for Dermot O’Leary, Tom Robinson, Radio 3′s In Tune, and Radio 4′s Loose Ends, the band’s widespread appeal is evident.

Following the critical success of their second album, New Skin, and a period of intense touring, the Women Make Music award will allow the group to return their focus to the creation of new material. The band plan to showcase the new material on their Spring 2015 UK tour and release the first finished tracks in April.
