For JOHN SMITH’s concert at Shelley Theatre on Saturday 24 February, we are very fortunate to have HATTIE BRIGGS playing a support set in the first half. Hattie has played before for Bournemouth Folk Club when we used Ocean View Hotel in 2014.
Hattie Briggs is a 24 year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Recently named Fender Undiscovered Artist of the Year 2017, she won the prize of supporting Lucy Rose at the prestigious O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire.
Hattie writes and sings straight from the heart. Her crystalline vocals, and insightful lyrics resonate across all ages, rekindling old memories and capturing imaginations. Combined with catchy melody lines and a cheeky, charismatic stage presence, it's unsurprising the youngster is seriously impressing industry figures and fans alike.
