Said The Maiden

Award winning folk trio 'Said The Maiden' are to perform live at Whitby Pavilion on Sunday 19 November 2017.

Said The Maiden are Jess Distill, Hannah Elizabeth and Kathy Pilkinton, three friends who discovered a mutual love of folk music when they reunited several years after spending their school years together in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.

From tentatively performing a few songs at their local Redbourn Folk club in 2012 and later being asked to appear at one of the club's guest nights, the group soon secured support and headline slots at folk clubs and festivals around the country which in turn have led to opportunities to support many fantastic artists including The Fisherman's Friends, Jim Moray, Megson, Martin Carthy, Sam Carter, Hannah James and Sam Sweeney and Clannad. 

They were also honoured to join legendary fiddler Dave Swarbrick on a successful UK solo tour in the spring of 2014, and released their debut album 'A Curious Tale' in June of the same year.

Said The Maiden was awarded Bristol Folk Festival’s prestigious Isambard Folk Award in 2015, and as a result opened for folk super-group The Full English at the 2015 Bristol Folk Festival.  They were also voted ‘Best Act’ by the public at the Great British Folk Festival’s Introducing Stage for the festival’s opening night, and are thrilled to have been invited back to the festival in December 2016 to perform on one of the main stages.

'Of Maids and Mariners' is the new EP by Said The Maiden.  With two new studio tracks recorded and produced by Stu Hanna of Megson and two live tracks recorded at Redbourn Folk Club, the new release is a showcase of how Said The Maiden has developed and grown over the last year or so, displaying more than ever the distinctive sound that defines them - from soaring acapella harmonies and fresh new arrangements of traditional songs, to their own compositions inspired by sea songs and shanties.  Said The Maiden are self-releasing the EP which was officially launched on 10 January 2016.
