Norwich based folk / Americana trio Alden, Patterson & Dashwood weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies. The independently-released debut album ‘Call Me Home’ was written and produced at home in Norwich. Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home.
Helen McCookerybook was the bass player/singer with The Chefs and guitarist/singer with Helen and the Horns in the 1980s, both of which were favourites of BBC Radio 1's John Peel. After a 20 year break to raise a family, she returned to the stage as a solo artist with a new set of songs, and since then has toured the UK regularly, releasing four solo albums.Her charming new album 'The Sea' typifies her tuneful, witty approach, and has received airplay from BBC6's Gideon Coe.
