The Maid On The Shore (ft. Lady Maisery)
Theft. Murder. Virginity. Vengeance. Feminism. Folklore. Flowers…? In this episode we will take a brief look at female heroism in English folksong, what it is to be a woman in folk music & hear voices of contemporary women in folk music when we are joined by phenomenal folk trio, Lady Maisery (separately known as Hannah James, Rowan Rheingans & Hazel Askew).
This episode discusses some adult-themed issues. The opinions & thoughts voiced regarding these folk songs are speculative, personal & not set in stone. If you have corrections, opinions, arguments or agreements you wish to voice, they are MOST welcome. If you wish to offer other female-centric folk songs, stories or dance traditions, they are doubly welcome! This episode was created to incite discourse…
