Lady Maisery Concert

Thursday 11th October 2018

Our annual concert is moving to a new venue, St Andrews Church, Arm Road, Dearnley.

This year we are delighted to present Lady Maisery. With their unique approach to harmony singing, intelligent and thoughtful arrangements of both traditional repertoire and original compositions, Hazel Askew, Hannah James andRowan Rheingans harness and celebrate their united voice.Whether unearthing a feminist twist hidden in a traditional tale, delivering a poignant anti-war ballad, or showcasing their immense multi-instrumental talents in original compositions that draw on a myriad of musical influences, Lady Maisery are skilful explorers of the power, beauty and vitality of song.

In an English folk scene currently bursting with bold and innovative folk music, vocal trio Lady Maisery shine brightly. Over the last five years, the trio have toured widely, performing sell-out shows across the UK and Europe.

Tickets £10 available via eventbrite:  Lady Maisery Tickets
