Alden & Patterson Extensive 2023 Tour Dates

May 8, 2023

Christina Alden & Alex Patterson are multi-instrumentalists and songwriters from Norwich. Their music is rich with intertwining harmony, sensitive accomplished musicianship and a creative song-writing style that is both delicate and moving. Deeply inspired by the world around them, they have a keen environmental eye to craft stories with the natural world at its heart, reflecting on the relationship between humans and the wild.


They have enjoyed touring extensively in the UK and Europe; including a twentythree-date concert hall tour with Show of Hands (including Union Chapel and St David’s Hall Cardiff), a show at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for Celtic Connections,
headline and main stage performances at some of the UK’s most prestigious folk festivals and performances in Norway, Belgium, France and Ireland. They have written and self-released four albums, composed music for a BBC Radio 4
documentary series and have had over a million streams on Spotify.

They are now on tour with the release of their latest single The Starless Sea, a self penned contemporary folk tale inspired by the novel by Erin Morgenstern. 

Says Christina:

‘During my late pregnancy I spent many afternoons relaxing in the bath attempting to keep comfortable and the beautiful novel ‘The Starless Sea’ kept me company. The magical world created by Erin Morgenstern; a tale of love and companionship prevailing through rough seas resonated with me as a mother to be, about to embark on a new journey into uncharted waters. ‘The Starless Sea’ is a love letter to the novel itself and a thankful nod for being an escape each time I delved into its pages’
