Bio

Holly Carter is a multi-instrumentalist who has established a reputation for herself as one of Bristol’s leading fingerstyle guitarists and one of the UK’s only professional female pedal steel players. Weaving together aspects of old-time, folk and Americana, she creates a diverse portfolio that draws inspiration from early American folk traditions and demonstrates a clear passion for the history and humanity behind the songs. Combined with a technical ability that follows hot on the heels of fingerstyle greats such as Chet Atkins and Doc Watson, Holly’s live performances present a truly original take on the landscape of folk and Americana.
