The evening's performance may feature an opening set by participants of the Lady Maisery Creative Singing Week.

Lady Maisery – Rowan Rheingans, Hannah James, and Hazel Askew – give an intimate and informal ‘unplugged’ evening concert as part of their Creative Singing Week at Halsway Manor. Expect contributions from course participants, alongside music from the trio themselves.

“Ambitious and beautiful” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 on 2016 album ‘Cycle’

In an English folk scene currently bursting with bold and innovative folk music, vocal trio Lady Maisery shine brightly. With their unique approach to harmony singing, intelligent and thoughtful arrangements of both traditional repertoire and original compositions, Hazel Askew, Hannah James and Rowan 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

Underpinning every performance are Lady Maisery’s distinctive harmonies: sometimes lush and rich, sometimes dark and invigorating, they intertwine with assured precision. The trio also breaks new ground as one of the first UK groups to explore the tradition of ‘diddling’ or mouth music, which has nearly died out in England, but is still prevalent in Scandinavia and other parts of Europe.
