Maddy Prior in concert with Hannah James & Giles Lewin



Maddy Prior has a history of collaborating with unexpected musicians, and approaching traditional and written material from interesting and varied perspectives.   Maddy again teams up with Giles Lewin and Hannah James. Giles is a multi-talented instrumentalist and singer with a classical background diluted by some years in the band After Hours. He is a stalwart of the Carnival Band, another long-time collaboration of Maddy’s. Hannah James is from the award-winning duo Hannah James and Sam Sweeney and can currently be seen as part of the group Lady Maisery.  Previously she has been in the Demon Barbers and Kerfuffle. Hannah brings a multitude of talents to the show including singing, accordion, clog dancing and youth!

 

“Folky three join up for joyously beardless collaboration.” 

(David Quantick - Q Magazine - 4 Stars.)
