Here at Grayshott Folk Club, we’ve already seen Zoё play live, as she was one of the first performers to play for us after a series of Covid lock downs and gig postponements on Thursday 22nd October 2020. She captivated our audience with her beautiful singing, skilful playing, her humour and confident stage manner.

This time around, Zoё will be joined by two of her gifted musical friends, Odette Michell and Amy Goddard. Together, they call themselves: The Honeybees.

Formed after an impromptu session backstage, the Honeybees gave their first public performance on Stage 2 at the Cambridge Folk Festival in 2018. Fatea described the trio as: ‘Stunning! Three superb voices that worked so well together and hopefully it won’t be a one-off.’ Indeed it wasn’t and the trio returned to Cambridge Folk Festival in 2022 for a return performance.

All experienced artists in their own right, Odette Michell, Zoё Wren and Amy Goddard perform in a songwriters circle format with some solo performances and many opportunities to collaborate. Exquisite close harmonies and excellent musicianship seamlessly blend the traditional and contemporary folk music worlds together.

Odette Michell is a British folk singer-songwriter, guitarist and bouzouki player with a bold new take on the acoustic tradition and a voice capable of demonstrating the finer points of both folk and traditional song with genuine craftsmanship.

Since her beginnings as a bona fide, fully-licensed Camden busker, Zoё Wren has gone on to perform on stages from the Cambridge Corn Exchange to Glasgow Celtic Connections. She is a past winner of the PRS Lynsey de Paul Award and the Alan Surtees Trust grant, and has had airplay on BBC Radio 2, as well as appearing on London Live and the BBC One Show.

Amy Goddard is a well-regarded name on the folk and acoustic scene around Portsmouth, although she grew up in South Wales, in the Merthyr Valley; her status as singer-songwriter is complemented by her expertise as music teacher and luthier.
