“This is traditional folk in a fine, fresh form” ~ The Telegraph

Acclaimed English folk duo The Askew Sisters delve into the entwined roots of folk and early music in this programme exploring the natural landscapes of the British Isles. For many hundreds of years, the imagery of nature has been used to express our innermost thoughts and feelings. From land and sea to fields and forests and wind and weather, these images permeate our songs and stories and are part of the cultural narrative of these islands.

Emily and Hazel Askew are fast becoming one of the most popular and respected duos on the English folk scene. From dark ballads to uplifting dance tunes, they play with driving energy and the unity of two people who have played together all their lives. The sisters use fiddle, melodeon and concertina to breath-taking effect. Their latest album, ‘In The Air Or The Earth’, won the Spiral Earth Award for Best Traditional Album 2015.
