Innovative vocal trio Lady Maisery will be performing in Reeth Memorial Hall tonight.

Over the last five years the threesome, comprising Hazel Askew, Hannah James and Rowan Rheingans, have toured worldwide and built a reputation for a unique approach to harmony singing, and intelligent and thoughtful arrangements of both traditional repertoire and original compositions.

The trio are one of the foremost English proponents of mouth music or ‘diddling’ – once common in England, and still found across parts of Europe – and are also skilled multi-instrumentalists; 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

Their distinctive sound has a wide appeal; their 2011 debut album, Weave and Spin, was named Album of the Week by the Independent newspaper and the second Mayday got a five star review from The Financial Times!

Support on the night will be from up and coming young duo Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith who play traditional and original music from round the British Isles.

Tickets are £13 in advance, £15 on the door, under 16s half price and all profits are for the upkeep and improvement of the hall.

Tickets are on sale at Reeth Post Office or contact John Little 01748-884759 or memorialhall@swaledale.org
