From December 2015 right through to May 2016 the collaborative project of Lucy Ward and Cupola has been working hard to craft this new full album product – Bluebell was released at a lovely concert event on Sat 18th June – thanks to all who came and supported us.
We do hope you enjoy…..
We’re already starting to get reviews coming through – check out Cupola:Ward‘s own page for more details…..meanwhile we will continue our preparations for our album tour in Ontario, Canada July-Aug 2016….

New news update from Cupola, Cupola:Ward and DanceCupola for 2013-14:
First of all we’d like to point you to our Gig Guide page for 2014 which is updated as far as we can at the present, although more gigs coming in….
Secondly, thank you to everyone who has supported us sooooo enthusiastically through 2013. We have had a great run of gigs!!
Cupola have had a lovely year starting with playing the main stage at Cheltenham Festival back in February:
….we continued this awesome fun through the year including playing to a full house in the Ham Marquee at Sidmouth, supporting our friends in Blowzabella:
Cupola:Ward have been equally busy with appearances at Cheltenham Festival, Upton-upon-Seven, Gower and finally our local favourite, Derby Folk Festival:
We’re so excited about this band!!
And finally, DanceCupola have gigged hard throughout the year, but the highlight for us really was the final LNE at Sidmouth – what an honour that was – we even had few cheeky chickens on stage with us:
“DanceCupola provided a magnificant last LNE with a first tune that swept like a hurricane aross the dance floor!” Martin of ECeilidh
