Liz Simcock at Bromsgrove Folk Club

Catshill Social Club, Meadow Road, B61 0JJ

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 counting 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 & Collister back catalogue and promoting an album of brand-new Gregson songs.

As always though, Liz’s focus is on her own song writing and live performances. 2020 brought 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.
