Daughter of a West Australian luthier and singer songwriter, Lucy Wise spent her childhood singing with the Wise Family Band, and from a young age has played at folk festivals around Australia and internationally.

Drawing inspiration from Appalachian and Celtic folk music, Lucy’s songs sketch universally recognisable stories woven around everyday characters and places.

She is joined by Chris Stone (violin) and Holly Downes (double bass) from new-acoustic instrumental trio ‘The String Contingent’; and Mischa Herman (accordion) to form 'The B’Gollies', who bring influences from their backgrounds in Classical, European folk, Celtic and American music.

The band was a favourite act at The National Folk Festival (ACT) and Fairbridge Festival (WA) this year. With both virtuosity and sensitivity, the band puts storytelling at the centre of their arrangements of songs that are all about people, and the small things that illuminate everyday life.

"“A wonderfully natural singer and uncommonly gifted writer, Lucy leads an excellent band. Prediction: within this decade Lucy will be a noted songster, worldwide." – Doug Spencer, ABC Radio National
