Composer

Alison’s folk-inspired orchestral compositions have been performed by ensembles across the South of England.

In 2012-13 Alison was a Creative Artist in Residence for EFDSS at Cecil Sharp House, London, writing an orchestral fantasia of morris tunes from the repertoire of the Beaux of London City morris men. The premiere performance of Morris Monday featured an orchestra brought together specially for the concert at Cecil Sharp House, conducted by Alison and containing both classical players and familiar faces from the folk scene.

In 2013 she created orchestral arrangements of traditional carols for EFDSS’s annual carol concert, which she also directed and conducted (see videos below).

Alison has also written several folk tunes!
