The Lucy Ward Band was formed to recreate the album's fuller sound on stage. At the Hare & Hounds Lucy will be joined by Belinda O'Hooley (formerly part of Rachel Unthank and The Winterset) and Heidi Tidow on piano, accordion, harmonium and guitar, percussionist Steve MacLachlan (formerly of The Willows), Joy Gravestock on fiddle and Sam Pegg on bass.
After five years as a solo artist this is the first time Lucy has toured with a band. She says having musicians around her helps bring her songs alive on stage.
''It's all the stuff I can hear when I write a song, but don't have enough arms to play,'' she grins.
