1 hour of songs and tunes originated and rooted in the folk tradition
Originally formed in 2009 The Medlars are folk trio from Essex, performing songs and tunes originated and rooted in the folk tradition, revisiting and creating new arrangements of classic English folk songs with a contemporary feel. Its current line up formed from a chance encounter at Folk East 2017, The Medlars are now Alie Barnes - vocals, Emma Hardy - fiddle/vocals, Tom Hardy guitar/vocals.

Alie grew up with the influences of the East Anglian fens in her blood and has been performing and running folk clubs since the mid-1980s. Emma has a classical music background and Tom is a self-taught guitarist, with a wide range of influences from folk to punk. Whilst original influences remain, these have expanded, drawing in ideas from within and outside the tradition. The Medlars have performed at festivals, such as Bobbing Barn, Moira, The White Horse, and Upton, and Folk Clubs including Colchester, Hadleigh, Loughton, The Hoy at Anchor, Waveney, and Wivenhoe.
