Our ‘tradition’ of Christmas concerts began with Kerfuffle, who played in St Mary’s on three memorable occasions. A key member of Kerfuffle was Hannah James, who now returns to the venue with her colleagues from Lady Maisery augmented by Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith.

In an un-missable 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). For this special tour they join musical forces, vocally and instrumentally, with two more inventive performers. The beguiling musical partnership of Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith completes the powerful line-up, bringing the outstanding vocals, sensitive instrumentation and powerful social conscience.
