LADY MAISERY

Supported by Thursday's Child

Forged from the voices of Hannah James (Kerfuffle, duo with Sam Sweeney), Hazel Askew (The Askew Sisters, The Artisans) and Rowan Rheingans (Fidola), Lady Maisery explore vocal harmony to breathtaking effect through their fresh interpretations of songs and ballads.

The trio burst onto the scene with the release of the debut album, Weave and Spin in summer 2011, which received much critical acclaim and was declared Album of the Week by The Independent. Their live performances during the festival season created a real buzz and they were nominated for the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012 and Best Debut at the 2012 Spiral Awards.

Whether singing unaccompanied, or with backing from their combined instrumental talents on accordion, harp and fiddle, be prepared to be enchanted by rich harmonies and sumptuous clashes.

"There's no escaping the mesmerising brilliance of this album - it's a sparkling and intriguing debut by any standards, and something impressively different." - fRoots
