Emily and Hazel Askew are a young duo who are making waves on the folk scene with their energetic brand of English folk music. Using fiddle and melodeon, they play and sing with obvious enjoyment and love for the music. Their repertoire largely comprises traditional songs and tunes. In 2010 they released their second CD Though Lonesome Woods - a follow up to their debut All in a Garden Green in 2007.
"Hazel's rich gutsy voice and inventive melodeon playing combined with the skill of Emily's singing fiddle or soulful cello are a new force to be reckoned with!" - Stirrings Magazine
