Askew Sisters


Have already seen them live several times and cannot wait to see them again!

Excellent singing and playing, and a very fine selection of beautiful songs. It very quickly becomes obvious how much enthusiasm they have for the folk tradition....

If you want to hear good quality tradional folk music - please join me!

Plse have a listen to the myspace site when you have a mo

There is a brief write up and links below:-

Emily and Hazel Askew are a young duo making waves on the folk scene with their energetic brand of English folk music. Using fiddle and melodeon, they play and sing with an infectious enjoyment and love for the music, winning them fans wherever they go.

From rhythmic foot stomping tunes to powerful interpretations of songs and ballads, their playing always guarantees to engage and inspire those who hear. "Hazel's rich gutsy voice and inventive melodeon playing combined with the skill of Emily's singing fiddle or soulful cello are a new  force to be reckoned with.” Stirrings magazine. ”What the Askews do so well is tell the story and allow the music accompanying them to help that story along.

Meeting up - will email my number the day before the gig

    Just joined this group because of the lovely MeetUp members I met at the green note last night (hat-tip to Paul). Excellent gig, it was great to finally see the Askew Sisters live. Sheer talent. Some great moments, but specially enjoyed the singalong of Blackbird.
