Alden Patterson & Dashwood

Norwich based folk / Americana trio Alden, Patterson and Dashwood weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies. The independently-released debut album ‘Call Me Home’ was written and produced at home in Norwich and is lovingly presented in attractive handmade covers, designed and hand-printed by the band. 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. They released their  debut album in late 2016.

They are Christina Alden (vocals & guitar), Alex Patterson (violin, mandolin) and Noel Dashwood (dobro guitar and vocals)
