Awake Arise

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

In an unmissable one-off collaboration, five of the English folk scene’s most inventive artists bring you "Awake, Arise - A Christmas Tour For These Times"; celebrating the riches of our varied winter traditions and reflecting upon the hope and resilience in music and song that can bring joy to us all in the darkest season. 

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.
