Edale boasts more than its fair share of talent. For a small village seemingly cut off from everywhere, it’s a hive of ideas, music, words and age-old skills. Bella Hardy, award-winning folk musician and passionate daughter of the valley, is one of our brightest stars and has recently come home to roost. Her new album (her ninth), Hey Sammy, is out next week – a soaring reflection on recent travels to far-flung lands and the modern Britain she has come back to. I highly recommend you buy it (obviously).
