Rebecca L Hearne is a folk singer and performer from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, and comes from a long line of Celtic and English musical performers. Inspired by traditional folk music from the British Isles and beyond, Rebecca blends straightforward acapella vocal performance with contemporary pop music and electronica, academic research, and principles of mythology, folklore, and magic to create a truly enchanting sensory experience.
Rebecca creates primarily vocal music and sounds with occasional accompaniment from traditional and contemporary instruments, electronics, and other objects. She blends English, Irish, Scottish and global folk songs with contemporary influences to create mesmerising performances punctuated with charisma, wit, and sparkle, resulting in a sparkling and transcendent atmosphere of bacchanalian warmth and chaos.
Rebecca has created music for the BBC, performed for AHRC-funded audio and visual media projects, made soundtracks for British installation artist Anthony Bennett, and performed on the main stage at Cambridge Folk Festival as part of Nancy Kerr and James Fagan’s …And Friends in 2018. She is currently working on her first album.
