- Main Information
Maddy Prior and her daughter Rose-Ellen Kemp formed this new band to sing together about the place they both call home.
‘Forgotten Lands’ was a name first coined by the farmers network to describe the Western Borderlands of North Cumbria, or the ‘debatable’ lands. This wild and beautiful place has a rich and bloody history and a wonderfully spartan and unspoiled landscape.
Maddy and Rose-Ellen (joined by Andrew Sinclair on guitar and Ruth Elden on viola) will sing some traditional songs from and about the area and many originals inspired by it. The show is a joyful and varied experience with many unexpected highlights.
