Folk musician Emily Askew will share her knowledge of early music at a conference in Hungary in October that celebrates English culture.
One of the most exciting things about the folk scene is the idea of community that permeates at every level, from its central role in the life cycle of folksongs to the manner and context in which they are performed. As such, it is always exciting when a new ensemble comes along, with every musician providing their own unique sound and style.
Next week we put the final stitch in the Yan Tan Tethera season of performances, events and workshops - curated by David Littler - with Spin-Cycle: a sonic journey into the world of spin.
The two sisters, Hazel and Emily Askew, are the featured singers in English Dance & Song magazine’s Autumn issue Singer, Song and Source series.
