Description

Alma is Emily Askew (Elizabethan Session, Askew Sisters), John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective, Methera) and Adrian Lever (Arhai). Two fiddles and a guitar, a joyous exploration of European and Asian fiddle traditions from three of London's finest early and traditional musicians.

From John Playford's 1651 English Dancing Master to tunes from Sweden, Tunisia, and Iraq, as well as compositions by all three band members.
Recorded by Dipper and featuring guest musicians Louise Duggan (RSC, National Theatre) and Duncan Lyall (Kate Rusby, Treacherous Orchestra), Varieties is a charming collection of instrumental virtuosity that presents its eclectic material with verve and elegance.
