Lucy Zirins hails from the small town of Burnley near Manchester. She picked up the guitar at age 12 after inheriting a guitar from her uncle and has been playing now for around 8 years and gigging since she was 16.
Combining a mix of blues, soul, folk and gospel numbers in her set as well as original material, Lucy is fast making a name for herself on the acoustic music scene and as a songwriter.
In 2010 she was chosen as one of the “Class of 2010” singer-songwriters by PRS for Music and featured in a high profile event in London, set up to recognise and support the UK’s most promising up and coming talent.
Lucy was also Runner Up in “The Young Artist Award” at The British Blues Awards 2012 and at age 15 was selected by the European Blues Association to receive the Sam Mitchell Scholarship for slide guitar, for which she received a week’s tuition in slide guitar under the watchful eye of Michael Messer. She returned the following year on the “John Jackson” Scholarship.
Having recorded her first EP at 16, Lucy has begun work on a debut album for release later this year.
