The Ashen Keys

Saturday 17th August 2024

The Ashen Keys are a multi instrumental, multi voiced celebration of heartfelt storytelling from Kent. The group brings together three musicians – Hannah Ellerby (vocals, ukulele, violin and oboe), Rachel Lowrie (vocals, guitar, ukulele and clarinet), and Vicky Price (vocals, French horn, accordion) – and their sound tells of influences from folk, blues, pop, classical and even early music.

Expect to be taken on a journey through dark folk tales, bittersweet love stories and reveries on nature, all with exquisite vocal harmonies and unique instrumentation. Their first couple of years as a band has included performances at Broadstairs Folk Week, Rochester Cathedral’s Ithamar Chapel, Black Deer Festival and at Shrewsbury Folk Festival as one of the winners of the Launchpad competition.

The Ashen Keys have recently recorded their debut album, which will be available to purchase at the event.
