Broadside Ballads


Three of the UK’s most innovative, award-winning folk artists reinvent a collection of broadsides – daily song sheets sold for pence – giving a rare insight into Britain’s history. Delving into the collection at the Bodleian Libraries and beyond, Lisa Knapp, Marry Waterson and Nathaniel Mann lead a five-piece band, bringing broadside ballads to life for a new generation.


  • Lisa Knapp – voice, fiddle, autoharp
  • Marry Waterson – voice
  • Nathaniel Mann – voice, bowed banjo, electronics and meat cleaver Barney Morse Brown – cello w/ pedals
  • Laurence Hunt – percussion
