Folk artists bring songs and carols to RSC/The Other Place

Awake, Arise: A Christmas Show For Our Times

Five acclaimed folk artists have got together to collaborate on Awake, Arise: A Christmas Show For Our Times, which comes to The Other Place on Sunday at 7.30pm.

Award-winning folk 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). The beguiling musical partnership of Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith complete the powerful line-up, bringing the outstanding vocals, sensitive instrumentation and powerful social conscience that has won them widespread critical acclaim. Featuring traditional songs and folk carols alongside contemporary music to galvanise and brighten the darkest season, Awake Arise promises to warm your heart, inspire your mind and put a spring in your step.
