The Duke of Norfolk (Adam Howard) is a peripatetic folk musician from Oklahoma. Having grown up in bluegrass territory and later studied Sound Design at the University of Edinburgh, his music nestles somewhere between traditional folk instrumentation and more modern electronic folk. More than somewhat bookish and deeply fascinated by religion & mythology, Howard’s writing tends to reflect the conflict between the fantastic / idealistic world of books & dreams and the reality of the ordinary. Howard started recording as The Duke of Norfolk in 2011 and has released two full-length albums and a handful of EPs under that title. His most recent release, Attendre et Espérer, is an exploration of grief & mourning from an almost academic perspective.
