Alma in Concert

Event information

Alma brings together award winning fiddlers John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective) and Emily Askew (Askew Sisters) with guitarist Adrian Lever (Arhai). Inspired by fiddle traditions from England and across the world, at the heart of Alma's music is the joyful sound of fiddles playing in harmony nurtured by the sensitive and driving accompaniment of guitar. Alma’s distinctive approach to the gems of each tradition result in beautiful and exciting new arrangements, which tantalise and excite the audience. Each member of Alma brings their own individual style and influences to the band: John’s work with Chris Wood in the English Acoustic Collective, ground-breaking string quartet Methera, Patterson Dipper, and Dipper Malkin. Emily’s extensive experience in early music (playing with The Dufay Collective, Shakespeare’s Globe and at Glyndebourne) as well as her work on the folk scene with The Askew Sisters and the Elizabethan Session. Adrian’s knowledge of Eastern European music developed through his work with Arhai and Horses Brawl. 2016 saw the release of debut album Varieties on Rootbeat Records. This received rave reviews and airplay on many radio stations.
