Maddie Morris is a contemporary, political folk singer from Leeds, who uses her music to engage audiences and open discussion around various forms of social exclusion. Maddie’s music embodies ‘the personal is political,’ and is heavily influenced by traditional protest song.
In 2019 Maddie was awarded the BBC Radio 2 young Folk award, before graduating from Leeds Conservatoire with the Peter Roberts CBE Memorial Prize for the highest undergraduate result in the Leeds City Region. Jim Moray describes Maddie as “leading the next generation of political songwriters.”
In this show, Maddie takes the audience through songs that will engage, inspire, and make you reflect on your community. When asked to describe this performance at Rural Art’s seed commission, audience members described the piece as ‘authentic’, ‘engaging’ and ‘intimate.’
