ENGLISH folk artists are joining together for a seasonal show in Settle and Leeds.

Awake Arise brings together female harmony group Lady Maisery with Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith. ubtitled A Christmas Show For Our Times, the show can be seen at All Hallows Church in Leeds on December 8 and Victoria Hall in Settle on December 9.

The inventive artists will be celebrating the riches of our varied winter traditions, reflecting upon the hope and resilience in music and song that can bring joy to people in the darkest season.

Award-winning trio Lady Maisery have for nearly a decade produced what The Guardian called “some of the most exquisite, thrilling vocal harmony work in the English folk scene”.

Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Gold-smith complete the line-up, promising outstanding vocals, sensitive in-strumentation and powerful social conscience.Visit eventbrite.co.uk for Leeds tickets, and settlevictoriahall.org.uk for Settle tickets.
