©2017 The Bailey Sisters
 We're not sisters . . . and we don't drink Baileys! The Bailey Sisters are Shelley Rainey, Karen Dyson & Aly Rainey. Karen & Shelley have sung for many years in various choirs, and met through their chamber choir Duodecimo, where Karen sings first soprano, and Shelley second alto. Aly's musical background is mainly orchestral, but she too has a fine singing voice and slots neatly into the mezzo role. We decided to start singing together in 2009 after enjoying several singing courses led by Maddy Prior, Abbie Lathe and Rose Kemp at Stonesbarn in Cumbria. With the addition of Karen's guitar, Aly's fiddle, and occasional other instruments, we offer a wide variety of traditional, self penned and classical material, ranging from 13th Century to the present day, and have become particularly well known for our acapella performances which feature strongly on all three of our studio albums "After Silence, Music", released in 2011, "Songs from the Distaff Side", released in 2014 and "Down in Yon Forest", released in 2017. The Bailey Sisters are regularly booked to perform live, either as support or headline. We are well known on the folk scene in the North West of England, and are branching out into other parts of the country, including High Wycombe, Reading and London. We look forward to singing somewhere near you very soon . . .
Shelley, Aly & Karen
