We talk to Emily Askew about her latest project with The Emily Askew Band – Alchemy. An exploration of folk and early music, and what can happen when you remove the boundaries between the two and look upon them with a fresh eye. One of the most original engaging albums of the year.
For their latest album, Tricks of the Trade, Dipper Malkin weave a veritable tapestry of sound that honours a long tradition, whilst adding the golden thread of the unexpected.
Their tunes and songs are connected by intermezzos of humorous anecdotes which give insight into the English folk tradition as well as into Dipper & Malkin’s personal musical journeys. Today a sees their special Album Launch concert at Sidmouth Folk Festival.
