The winner of the 2011 Ely Folk Festival Band Competition is singer-songwriter Jess Morgan from Norwich. Jessâ€™s songs celebrate the countryside and coastline of East Anglia as well as personal experiences. Her poetic lyrics and melodic voice create a vibrant and original sound that is both memorable and refreshing and has been described as â€˜Norfolk Americanaâ€™. Her first full length album â€˜All Swellâ€™ is bound to go far and Jess Morgan is a name to watch. As winner of the competition, Jess will open the folk festival on Friday 8th July with a performance on the main marquee stage. There was a strong field of competition entries to select from this year highlighting the great local musical talent around.
