2019 was Elsi’s ‘year of emergence’; starting with her first live performance at the South Norfolk Labour Party Acoustic showcase, followed by a number of appearances at ‘open mic’ events around Norfolk, as well as regularly attending showcase evenings at The Barrel in Banham. After 3 performances at Ely Folk Festival, culminating with Elsi opening the final night’s concert on stage 1, she has ventured further afield playing a number of venues in and around Norfolk including folk festivals such as Folk East, Bury Folk Festival, Cambridge Folk festival, Strawberry Fair and more!
Following her success at the ‘club tent’ at Ely folk festival, Elsi was interviewed by Nicky Stockman of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire who introduced her to the listening public on ‘The Folk Show’ transmitted on Monday 15th July.
Then on September 2nd Elsi was the featured artist on Les Ray’s ‘Strummers and Dreamers’ show on Cambridge 105 Radio. You can hear the full session below.
