Valley Folk presents Zoe Mulford
Drake House Studio Theater
Oct 19  7:30 PM

Zoe Mulford is an American singer-songwriter from the Southern Tier now based in Manchester, England. Her clear, strong voice is accompanied by claw-hammer banjo or guitar as she tells delightfully true tales. She is a keen observer of life and a real gem. Prepare to be captivated with her story songs.

A set by Zoe is like a small volume of short stories - evocative, beautifully crafted, and endlessly varied. Whether her starting-point is Franklinís doomed polar expedition or the neglected contents of her own refrigerator, her vivid storytelling and down-to-earth humor take listeners on an enjoyable journey. Backing her clear voice with guitar or claw-hammer banjo, she draws on the traditional music of the US and the British Isles to make sense of the modern world. She has three albums on Azalea City Recordings, an independent label based in Takoma Park, MD. She was raised near Philadelphia, but now lives in the northwest of England and plays on both sides of the Atlantic.

Her most recent release, "Bonfires", celebrates the folk tradition from North Carolina to Liverpool. The album reached #3 on the Folk-DJ chart the month after its release and has continued to have airplay across the US and beyond.
