Lucy Cathcart Froden
Lucy has been writing and performing songs in various bands (Galuma, The Social Services, Tall Tales, Zoetrope) for 15 years, in London, Stockholm and Glasgow. Since having some kids she's not been doing as much gigging and touring as she used to, but she's become fascinated by shared songwriting processes, and how music can connect people across differences in our life experience or language. She's currently learning more about this by recording a solo album in collaboration with her tenement neighbours (funded by Creative Scotland) and by doing a PhD that's all about how music connects us. At the moment she's living in Malmö in the south of Sweden, and she performs under the name 'raukarna'. She loves bikes, the sea, and proper chunky chippy chips.
