Details

One of the country's finest female singer songwriters.

Liz Simcock makes a very welcome return to the mill on Saturday 26 March 2022. Liz has performed at the mill twice before - both times as a duo with Clive Gregson. We are delighted she has chosen to return to us with her solo show.

Liz Simcock is one of the country's finest female singer songwriters. Her songs - often autobiographical and highly personal - are immediately accessible to audiences and injected with poetry, emotion and splashes of humour. In 1999 she featured on the Playpen Album of New Acoustic Music alongside Eliza Carthy, Billy Bragg, Eddi Reader and Kathryn Williams.

Since then she has trodden an independent path, gaining a growing reputation as a performer and songwriter. Liz counts Richard Thompson, Clive Gregson, Boo Hewerdine and Joni Mitchell amongst her songwriting influences. Liz has made five albums. Friday Night Train Home, released in 2013, featured the virtuoso backing of Dave Ellis and Boo Howard. In 2015 and 2017 Liz toured with Clive Gregson performing songs from the Gregson and Collister back catalogue and promoting an album of brand new Gregson songs. As always though, Liz's main focus is on her own songwriting and live performances.

2020 brings the release of her fifth album Winter Hill, a pared down acoustic album featuring one voice, one guitar and a handful of beautifully crafted and previously unreleased songs.

"Liz Simcock is one of the finest singer/songwriters around. With a strong, expressive voice and high quality songs her music is fresh, original and very entertaining."
