The Askew Sisters
Two fine performers and interpreters of English folk music, Hazel and Emily’s live performances brim with the depth and connection of musicians who have been immersed in folk music all their lives.
Together they reinterpret songs and balladry, creating breathtaking arrangements, allowing words that are hundreds of years old to resonate profoundly with contemporary audiences.
Both women are also skilled multi-instrumentalists and expert players of dance music, using fiddles, melodeons, concertina and cello to bring old dance music to life.
Since winning the 2015 Spiral Earth Award for Best Traditional Album, the sisters have been busy with a number of other innovative projects.
Emily has been touring with her vibrant fiddle band, Alma, as well as releasing her first solo album, exploring the crossover between folk and early music which was critically acclaimed by the national press.
Hazel has been busy working with her groundbreaking trio, Lady Maisery, as well as folk supergroups Coven and Songs of Separation, the latter winning Best Album at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Stirred by these new musical experiences, the sisters now return to their duo with a fresh vision. They spent 2018 deep in rehearsal, reconstructing and re-exploring their sound, unearthing old songs, as well as composing and creating new music.
The culmination of this will be their long awaited fourth studio album, to be released in 2019.
