Come and celebrate the release of ‘Wesselbobs’, Bryony and Alice’s brand new album of Yorkshire winter songs and tunes.
Hailing from West Yorkshire, Bryony & Alice are both long-time purveyors of English folk music, united by a fascination with local folk song and tune collections.
In 2019 they came together as a powerful new duo and have taken the folk scene by storm. Featuring fiddle, harmonium, tenor guitar, body percussion and intricate vocals in their distinctive regional accents, they combine their respect and understanding of tradition with their own contemporary style of performance, imparting their extensive knowledge of the material with wit and humour to present a unique repertoire of harmony, heritage and northern banter.
Their debut duo album, ‘A Year Too Late and a Month Too Soon’, researched and recorded in and out of lockdowns and released in 2022, showcased their fresh and masterful interpretations of these treasured old songs, garnering 5 star reviews, global radio play and live radio performances including Radio 2’s Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe and Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.
The new album, ‘Wesselbobs’ is a collection of winter songs and tunes associated with Yorkshire and includes unearthed traditional gems and unique local versions of better-known seasonal songs.
Wessel-bobs, Wassail-bobs or Wesley-bobs were a kind of decorated, evergreen bough built around a spherical frame, carried by Wassailers or carol singers in the 18 and 1900s, mostly in West Yorkshire.
‘Wesselbobs’ is available to pre-order at bryonyandalice.com and will be officially released on November 1st 2023.
