In an English folk scene bursting with bold and innovative music, LADY MAISERY shines 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 skillful explorers of the power, beauty and vitality of song. Over the last ten years, the trio has toured widely, performing sell-out shows across the UK and Europe and have released five critically acclaimed albums.
Underpinning every performance are Lady Maisery’s DISTINCTIVE HARMONIES: sometimes lush and rich, some-times dark and invigorating, they intertwine with assured precision. The trio is also one of the foremost English proponents of mouth music, or ‘diddling’. Once common in England, and still found across parts of southern and northern Europe, this form of singing without words is a perfect showcase for their sheer musicality. Each singer also being an accomplished instrumentalist, many songs are expertly accompanied by a rich tapestry of Rowan’s fiddle, banjo and bansitar, Hazel’s harp and concertina and Hannah’s accordion and foot percussion.
Since the group’s conception, Lady Maisery has attracted substantial attention, was nominated for the HORIZON AWARD at the BBC RADIO 2 FOLK AWARDS 2012, received the ‘BEST ALBUM’ award at the BBC RADIO 2 FOLK AWARDS 2017 and has visited the USA as OFFICIAL SHOWCASE ARTIST at the FOLK ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL.
