Earlier this year, folk-pop harpist and singer Serafina Steer released her excellent third album, The Moths Are Real. We were bowled over by the record, saying in our review: "Steer's clear voice, with its occasional, quite unplaceable regional burr, is one of the finest updates of the British folk tradition we've heard in years. This is never twee, but witty, subversive and at times sensual, the power dynamic between male and female, dream and reality hard to place as Steer's voice arches and meanders over the melody [...] fact is, we're just so rarely presented with an album that manages to make smart and unusual pop as refreshing as that found on The Moths Are Real."

Steer is playing London's Bush Hall this Thursday, April 25 - get hold of tickets here - and we've got two tickets to give away to one lucky reader. To be in with a chance of winning, e-mail your answer to the following question to, with STEER in the subject line, by 10am on Thursday.
