Becky Dellow News

1st August 2018

It was about time I updated my online profile since the software had been discontinued on my old site and I couldn’t login to update anything!

So, what’s new? Lots more images and up-to-date info with some great reviews stacking up from the new album I recorded with Mischief Afoot earlier in the year. There are a couple of sample tracks to listen to on the right hand side and ping me a message if you’d like to buy the album…

It’s been a busy year so far with my PhD thesis being submitted (awaiting viva examination with Dr Vic Gammon and Dr Julia Bishop). Fay Hield was a super supervisor and the topic is all very folk related – if it passes I can send you a copy if you have trouble sleeping 😉 I’m planning an exciting new project focussing on some of the research carried out during the PhD so watch this space!

Enjoy browsing, Becky

New Reviews Just In!

A sample of some of the reviews coming in – see Review page for full text and click on some of the sample tracks on the right to have a listen. Message me if you would like to buy a copy:

“a very fine fiddle player” – Johnny Coppin, singer/songwriter and presenter of the Acoustic Show on BBC local radio across The West. 2018

“a very pleasant and entertaining recording and deserves a place in every traditional music afficianado’s collection. It’s a delightfully easy to listen to piece of work” Derek Gifford Folk Northwest 2018

“John Davis contributes one self composed tune and Becky Dellow two, including the beautiful ‘Ruskin Mill’ that ends Mischief Afoot in reflective style.” Ian Croft RnR 2018

Mischief Afoot closes with another charming piece, Dellow’s Ruskin Mill, beautifully played on solo fiddle and then with recorder and guitar harmonies, a very sweet ending”. Alex Monaghan Folkworld.eu 2018

“This is a pleasing debut album…These experienced musicians deliver a confident set of mainly traditional songs and tunes…Becky provides three fine tunes of her own in Lost In Washing, Oddpiece Jig, and the reflective Ruskin Mill. Good listening…It should do much to raise the trio’s profile” Tony Hendry Living Tradition 2018
