Description

Emily and Hazel Askew have become known as two of the foremost performers and interpreters of English folk music. Their live performances brim with the depth and connection not only of two sisters, but also of two musicians who have been immersed in folk music all their lives. Together, they rework and reinterpret songs and balladry, creating breath-taking arrangements, which allow words that are hundreds of years old to resonate profoundly with contemporary audiences.

Alongside this, both women are also skilled multi-instrumentalists and expert players of dance music, using fiddles, melodeons, concertina and cello in their innate drive to bring old dance music to life.

Since releasing their third album ‘In the Air or the Earth’ in 2014, the two women have been busy working on a number of other innovative projects; Emily has been touring with her vibrant fiddle band Alma, as well as releasing her first solo album, which explored the cross-over between folk and early music and was highly critically acclaimed by the national press; Hazel has been busy working with her groundbreaking trio Lady Maisery, as well as folk super groups Coven and Songs of Separation, the latter of which won 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. Their long awaited fourth studio album, Enclosure, was released in 2019.

'Inspired arrangements of traditional music, striking versions of tricky ballads - this is traditional folk in a fine, fresh form.' (The Telegraph)
