Hurray!! MrsAckroyd are delighted to announce the long-awaited release of our first album. To listen to a few song clips from the album simply click on an icon below.
“Despite the absence of Les Barker his strange imagination still soars to musical heights through the stunning voices of Alison Younger and Hilary Spencer and the keyboard wizardry of Chris Harvey. Alison, Hilary and Chris musically recreate the weird and wonderful world of the internationally acclaimed poet, philosopher, photographer and fruitcake and continue to perform the marvellous nonsense that is MRSACKROYD. A remarkable trio of musicians that will delight and entertain you. Funny, witty, thoughtful, emotional - but always brilliant!”

Crikey - what a big finish!  That was MRSACKROYD.  Fantastic!”   BBC Radio Leeds at Cleckheaton Folk Festival
“What a privilege to witness the inaugural gig of MrsAckroyd. We were treated to a feast of great singing, expert accompaniment and of course humour both subtle and zany.  Alison, Hilary and Chris have a gift of communicating with the audience which guarantees an evening of total enjoyment.”  Croydon Folk Club
"If you thought Mrs Ackroyd without the physical presence of Les Barker was unthinkable, then think again! They had the audience in fits of laughter throughout and it's really refreshing to find an act that is not only "different" but one that oozes quality and really communicates with its audience. Of course, this doesn't just "happen" but is underpinned (to be serious for just a second!) by the brilliance of Les's lyrics, the superb vocal skills and comedic timing of Hilary Spencer and Alison Younger and the fine musicianship of Chris Harvey. A rare treat."                                                                                        Folk On The Moor                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Ivybridge Devon
“One of the best musicians in the country and two of the top female vocalists combine to give an evening of pure magic. . .I laughed so much I’m sore!”                                                                                                                                                             Llantrisant Folk Club
“A feast of musical humour from a high quality act who give their own hilarious treatment to well-known songs”  Heswall Hall Wirral
