The Medlars

The Medlars

The Medlars are folk trio from East Anglia, 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. 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 are Alie Barnes - vocals, Emma Hardy - fiddle/vocals, Tom Hardy guitar/vocals.
