We consider fermion correlators in non-abelian holographic superconductors. The spectral function of the fermions exhibits several interesting features such as support in displaced Dirac cones and an asymmetric distribution of normal modes. These features are compared to similar ones observed in angle resolved photoemission experiments on high Tc superconductors. Along the way we elucidate some properties of p-wave superconductors in AdS 4 and discuss the construction of SO(4) superconductors.
