Alma (John Dipper, Emily Askew, Adrian Lever)

Alma brings together award winning fiddlers John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective) and Emily Askew (Askew Sisters) with guitarist and tambura player 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.

Each member of Alma brings their own individual style and influences to the band. This includes John’s work with Chris Wood in the English Acoustic Collective and groundbreaking string quartet Methera, Emily’s extensive experience in early music (playing with The Dufay Collective, Shakespeare’s Globe and at Glyndebourne), and Adrian’s knowledge of Eastern European music developed through his highly acclaimed work with Arhai and Horses Brawl.

Alma’s unique approach to the gems of each tradition result in beautiful and exciting new arrangements, that tantalise and excite the audience.

Support: Tim Mellor

Tim Mellor is a talented local musician and a founder of the Black Fen Folk Club who plays and sings traditional songs accompanying himself on guitar, Northumbrian small pipes, melodeon and occasionally banjo. He is influenced by such greats as Ewan MacColl, Anne Briggs and Nic Jones.
