The Askew Sisters

Nature Unwrapped

‘Inspired arrangements of traditional music, striking versions of tricky ballads – this is traditional folk in a fine, fresh form’ The Telegraph

‘An album of singular and iconic beauty’ FolkWords

‘Vocals shimmering above fiddles, viola, melodeons and concertina, [this album] casts its spell.’ The Sunday Times


The Askew Sisters’ live performances brim with the depth and connection not only of two sisters, but also of two musicians who have been immersed in folk music all their lives. Together, they rework and reinterpret songs and balladry, creating breath-taking arrangements, which allow words that are hundreds of years old to resonate profoundly with contemporary audiences.

In this special event, Hazel and Emily will curate a selection of songs from their repertoire that explore our connection and disconnection with the natural world.

Traditional music has uniquely charted our ever-changing relationship with nature, showing us not just the realities of living and working in different environments, but also how our idea of the natural world has changed.

To tell stories of the natural world is to tell stories of human nature too, a connection we are being forced to re-examine in light of the climate emergency we are currently facing.

This performance will include material from The Askew Sisters’ critically acclaimed 2019 album ‘Enclosure’ as well as well as songs from previous albums, forming a retrospective of their work together.
