Alden Patterson & Dashwood are a Norwich-based trio comprising Christina Alden (vocals, guitar), Alex Patterson (fiddle, vocals) and Noel Dashwood (dobro, vocals). They formed in late 2015, and released an unpretentious, award-winning and impressive debut CD, Call Me Home, in the third quarter of 2016.
The trio weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro and guitar around beautifully written original songs and melodies. Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home. Their excellent live performances have engaged and impressed audiences across the UK and Europe and have included an extensive support tour with folk legends Show Of Hands and main stage shows at some of the UK’s most prestigious festivals
