“Exquisite, elegant, atmospheric and charmingly quirky” (The Guardian)
+ support from Methera
Groundbreaking string quartet Methera provide support tonight. Their national tours, BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and collaborations have helped them establish a reputation as a scintillating live act, blazing a trail through the uncharted territory that lies between folk and chamber music. Lucy Deakin (cello), Emma Reid (fiddle), Miranda Rutter (viola) and guest Sam Sweeney (fiddle) combine a deep knowledge of traditional music with a wide range of other influences and a deep sense of musical interaction. Newly composed pieces sit alongside timeless traditional material; their music is both sophisticated and earthy, groundbreaking and familiar, enchanting and thrilling – chamber folk at its best.
“Seriously stylish playing that’s putting the sparkle back into the tradition”
– Verity Sharp, BBC Radio 3 Late Junction
