- Songs Of Separation London Lights 5:22 Songs Of Separation 2016 (Hazel Askew) http://www.songsofseparation.co.uk/
“Songs of Separation brought together ten female folk musicians from Scotland and England, to create a recording which reflects on the issue of ‘separation’ in its many forms, through traditional song. Celebrating the similarities and differences in our musical, linguistic and cultural heritage, and set in the context of a post-referendum world, the work aims to prompt new thinking about the issue of separation as it occurs in all our lives.”
The SoS musicians are Eliza Carthy, Karine Polwart, Mary Macmaster, Kate Young, Hannah James, Hazel Askew, Rowan Rheingans, Jenn Butterworth, Jenny Hill, Hannah Read. London Lights features the wonderful voice of Hazel Askew.
