About us

Hazel Askew, Hannah James & Rowan Rheingans
Support Act Yan Tan Tether

In an English folk scene presently bursting with bold and innovative music, vocal trio Lady Maisery shines brightly. With their distinctive harmony singing – sometimes lush and rich, sometimes dark and invigorating - and their thoughtful arrangements of both traditional and original songs, Hazel Askew, Hannah James and Rowan Rheingans have earned a thoroughly justified reputation. Whether unearthing the feminist twist hidden in an old folk song, delivering a poignant anti-war ballad, demonstrating multi-instrumental talents on accordion, harp, concertina, fiddle, banjo and more, or reviving the lost art (in England) of mouth music or “diddling”, they are supremely skilful explorers of the power, beauty and vitality of folk song.
