Folk trio Lady Maisery are on tour this spring performing music from their critically acclaimed album Cycle and from collaborative project Songs of Separation (winner of Best Album at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.), and they will be at St Peter's Church in Malvern on Friday, March 23.

In 2016 The Guardian described theirs as “some of the most exquisite, thrilling vocal harmony work in the English folk scene”. With their unique approach to harmony singing, intelligent and thoughtful arrangements of both traditional repertoire and original compositions, multi-instrumentalists and singers 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. Over the last five years, the trio have toured widely, performing sell-out shows across the UK and Europe and have released three critically acclaimed albums.

Since the release of their debut album in 2011, Weave and Spin have been nominated for the Horizon Award at the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and their second album Mayday (2013), a darker and more politically coloured record, cemented their growing reputation as a truly unique band with critics calling it an album full of “ideas, purpose and urgency…powerful, enthralling work” (Songlines). Lady Maisery’s third album Cycle was released with a sell-out 23 date tour in 2016 and more rave reviews.
