New Roots presents… fRoots Album Of The Year Editors Choice winners and Folk By The Oak stars Alden Patterson & Dashwood.
Taking inspiration from the twin pillars of American bluegrass and English folk, Alden Patterson & Dashwood weave rich harmonies with fiddle, dobro and mandolin around a combination of finely crafted original compositions and traditional songs, all the while maintaining a thoroughly contemporary cutting edge. Their debut album, Call Me Home, was fRoots 2016 Album of the Year Editor’s Choice – the album is a joy to behold, as was their debut performance at the prestigious Folk by the Oak Festival in the summer of 2018. No museum pieces, A P & D feel equally at home alongside the likes of Fleet Foxes and Old Crow Medicine Show as they do the stalwarts of US & UK trad folk. The trio features members of much respected Norwich folk bands Murphy’s Lore, Woodland Creatures and Dumbfoundus.
The band are currently on a UK tour supporting Show of Hands.
“When we saw this Folk / Americana trio live we were completely captivated, and knew we had to bring them to Folk by the Oak and share them with our audience” Adam Slough – Folk By The Oak Festival Director
