​Forest Folk and Roots present… Alden Patterson and Dashwood with support from Tom Craven

This is the second visit to Forest Folk and Roots by Norwich based folk/Americana trio Alden, Patterson and Dashwood.

The trio is made up of Christina Alden (Guitar & Vocals), Alex Patterson (Violin & Mandolin) and Noel Dashwood (Dobro & Vocals)

Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home.

The independently-released debut album ‘Call Me Home’ released in 2016 was written and produced at home in Norwich. Their second Album “By the Night” was released in 2018.

The trio, who has recently completed a major venue tour supporting Show of Hands, are playing Cranfield as part of their ongoing extensive UK tour of festivals and clubs.
