Once in a while a group of young musicians get together that make you stop, look and listen…Said The Maiden is one such gathering. The great news for folk fans, live music lovers and aspiring musicians is that this multi award-winning Hertfordshire based folk trio have recently released their second album, and completed an Autumn UK tour.

‘Here’s A Health’ is a showcase of the trio’s ever-developing yet distinctive sound, featuring their trademark acapella harmonies and fresh new arrangements of traditional songs. However this new release also displays a more diverse collection of material from the trio including a few covers of more modern folk songs, as well as original compositions inspired by their love of the folk tradition. Expect intricate three-part harmonies interweaved with beautiful simplistic instrumentation. Where there is a good story to be told, Said The Maiden will seek it out and tell it through their music.

They offer a stunning collection of such stories: tales of love and loss, myths and legends of the land and sea, and of the unforgettable characters who feature throughout the captivating and fantastical stories that folklore has to offer.

The first video is from Uxbridge Folk Club at the end of last year. The one below is a good excuse for a bit of Dave Swarbrick magic! Posted by Folkstock in 2014:
