Striding Edge: Lakeland Roots Revival

Prominent in the revival of traditional Cumbrian music happening over the last decade, Striding Edge deliver a feast of roots music sourced from the wild Eastern moors and mountainous central valleys of Lakeland:


Cooking dance tunes!

Unearthing dance tunes from the Cumbrian archives and delivering these with insight, attitude and energy, has always been at the heart of Striding Edge's unique approach. Tradition doesn't stand still, so we craft our own tunes, too..


Time for a song!

Proclaiming the hidden histories for the Lakeland valleys, Striding Edge's songs span four centuries of the people's experience: Songs with 4-part vocal harmonies are ribald and rocking, reflective and refined, and integral to our every show.
