About

Lady Maisery

In an English folk scene currently bursting with bold and innovative music, Lady Maisery shine brightly.

Lady Maisery's members are all highly respected performers in their own right: Hannah James is currently touring her first solo show 'Jigdoll' and also plays in folk legend Maddy Prior's trio '3 for Joy'; Rowan Rheingans is a respected songwriter and performs with BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning duo 'The Rheingans Sisters'; and Hazel Askew performs with award winning duo Askew Sisters and the early music group The Artisans.

In 2016 The Guardian described theirs as "some of the most exquisite, thrilling vocal harmony work in the English folk scene". With their unique approach to harmony singing, intelligent and thoughtful arrangements of both traditional repertoire and original compositions, multi-instrumentalists and singers Hazel Askew, Hannah James and Rowan Rheingans harness and celebrate their united voice.

Underpinning every performance are Lady Maisery's distinctive harmonies: sometimes lush and rich, sometimes dark and invigorating, they intertwine with assured precision. The trio are also one of the foremost English proponents of mouth music, or "diddling" – once common in England, and still found across parts of southern and northern Europe, this form of singing without words is a perfect showcase for their sheer musicality.

Tickets £14 advance or £16 on door.
