Lo Polidoro - Biography
In her teens she fell in love with the music of the 1960's folk movement - French, British and American - and began performing some of this material with her sister Aurelie around the cafés and bars. This culminated in the formation of the six-piece folk-rock band Legendaïeur - becoming a minor legend in the region.
In 1998 she made a sudden decision to move to London and, within a few months, met a network of mucicians who inspired her to learn fingerstyle guitar and to begin writing songs. She also discovered the octave mandola.
Numerous folk club and pub gigs later, often appearing with many of South London's roots music luminaries, Lo has established a small band, a debut CD of original songs, and has a French tour and an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival already under her belt. Work on her second album is scheduled to begin in early 2007.
