Lewis Barfoot is an Irish/English contemporary folk artist & singer-songwriter based in Cork. She writes mystic and majestic songs that stop you in your tracks. Working with an uncomplicated loveliness of sound, she blends ethereal, evocative vocals with original compositions and reinventions of traditional songs and displays a fearless and disarming honesty in her lyrics.

She has been captivating audiences with her beautiful voice that “Melts the Hearts of Angels” according to Folk Radio UK and is frequently compared to the likes of Kate Rusby, Sandy Denny and Maíre Brennan. Her debut album, Glenaphuca released in 2021 received great support from RTÉ 1, FRUK, BBC Radio Ulster and RTÉ na Gaeltachta. Her sophomore album HOME, released in November 2023, welcomes rivulets of jazz amidst her folk palette and has garnered great praise.

“Barfoot might just be one of the most important voices in contemporary Irish music” ( FATEA).
“She sings like an angel, she plays like an inspired Orpheus, and her lyrics are as uncompromising as reinforced concrete.” (AT THE BARRIER).
“Barfoot’s voice, deft guitar-work and her perceptive songs blend magically to create an album to curl up with, and be thankful for” (JACKIE HAYDEN, HOT PRESS).
