WARRNAMBOOL singer-songwriter Marcia Howard has gone from Port Fairy Folk Festival Artist of the Year to catching the attention of pop star Delta Goodrem on TV talent show The Voice.
Howard, who was a member of Goanna alongside her brother Shane, sang Sting’s Fields Of Gold and a chorus of her brother’s signature tune Solid Rock.
Goodrem will be Howard’s “coach” going into the next round.
Howard, who is now based in Melbourne, was a highlight of this year’s Port Fairy Folk Festival, where she was named Artist of the Year and launched her Nashville Sessions EP.
She is also performing at the National Celtic Festival on June 10-13 and will soon release a book and CD called Holywells To Waterholes.
