The Emily Askew Band In Richmond
March 9, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Emily Askew Band
Formed to fuse Emily’s passions for Medieval and Renaissance melodies/songs and modern folk styles. Emily has had a successful career in both Folk (Askew Sisters, Alma, Ceilidh Factor and the Elizabethan Session) and Early Music (The Artisans, Shakespeare’s Globe, Glyndebourne, The Dufay Collective, Joglaresa, Mediva and the Medieval Babes). Being an multi-instrumentalist playing vielle, shawm, bagpipes, recorders and medieval harp, Emily wanted to explore the possibilities of mixing these unusual sounds with modern instruments. The band also includes singer/guitarist/fiddler Jamie Roberts (Gilmore Roberts, The Dovetail Trio) and fiddler/viola d’amore playing John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective, Methera, Dipper Malkin, and Alma).
Their debut album ‘Alchemy’ has brought these rave reviews: ”One of the albums of the year” (4**** Clive Davies, The Times); ”Mixing folk and early music with beauty and precision”
