Featuring traditional songs, folk carols, spoken word and newly written music, five of the folk scene’s most inventive artists celebrate our varied winter traditions and reflect on the hope and joy music can bring to us in the darkest season. 

Award-winning trio Lady Maisery (Hannah James, Rowan Rheingans and Hazel Askew) have produced “some of the most exquisite, thrilling vocal harmony work in the English folk scene” (The Guardian) and here they’re joined by the beguiling musical partnership of Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith, bringing the outstanding vocals, sensitive instrumentation and powerful social conscience that has won them widespread critical acclaim.
