Where to even begin? Polly Jean Harvey; guitar maestro, singer-songwriter, poet, writer, composer…she’s mastered pretty much all of it over the past couple of decades, rising from her partnership with John Parish in the early nineties, to release nine solo studio albums since 1995’s To Bring You My Love, two of which would scoop the Mercury Prize, some ten years apart. Always engrossing, always inventive, always reaching for new pastures to conquer, Harvey is the most idiosyncratic of artists and one that never stops moving forwards, turning her hand from punk-rock and more mainstream deliverances to searing avant-garde excursions with a masterly skill that is all-but unequaled. Following on from her Grammy nominated, ninth studio album, The Hope Six Demolition Project, released last year to suitably favourable acclaim, Green Man couldn’t be more honoured to have PJ Harvey headline this year’s special festival. A thrilling enigma in every sense of the word.
