Lady Maisery and Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith invite you into their next alchemic collaboration!

Having bewitched and galvanised audiences with their much-loved wintertime tour ‘Awake Arise’, “two of the most engaging and inventive acts on the current folk scene” (FRUK) return with a brand new show.

With more folk songs historically collected about the month of May than any other time apart from Christmas, the charismatic 5-piece embark on a journey to mark this season in song. There is of course morris, mayday, migration and magic. There is also ritual, rave and cider with Rosie. There are countryside hares and city foxes. There is the fear for our warming planet alongside the promise of ripening fruit. There is class struggle, cuckoo calls, beaches and barbecues. As with their celebrated winter work, the Awake Arise show is an essential incantation to the summertime and all that it holds.

Award winning trio Lady Maisery (Hannah James, Rowan Rheingans and Hazel Askew) have for nearly a decade produced “some of the most exquisite, thrilling vocal harmony work in the English folk scene” (The Guardian).

The beguiling musical partnership of Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith complete the powerful line-up, bringing the outstanding vocals, sensitive instrumentation and powerful social conscience that has won them widespread critical acclaim.
