Mary Hampton is a writer, performer and promoter of songs living in Brighton, England. While reading 20th Century Music at University, she heard something very strange on a friend’s mixtape in between Frank Zappa and Penderecki. It was an English folksong...The Snow it Melts the Soonest by Anne Briggs. It was the sheer exoticism of this sound alone that set her on her current path. After recording two EPs of traditional folksongs at home (Book One and Book Two), she wrote her first original album: a collection called “My Mother’s Children” which was released by Navigator Records in August 2008 and went on to be named #4 folk album of the year in MOJO magazine’s 2008 round-up. She toured in the US in Spring 2009 - a double-bill tour with American anti-folk heroine Diane Cluck - and extensively after that in Britain, including a national tour for the Greenman Festival Her second album, Folly, was released in 2011. "terrifying and gorgeous, epic and tiny, unusual and strong... 'My Mother's Children' is an album I know I am going to love for life." - Eliza Carthy Read more on Last.fm.
