The Melrose Quartet
£16.00 (concessions £14.00 | under 35 £6.00)
Comprising the award-winning Nancy Kerr on fiddle with James Fagan on bouzouki or guitar, Jess Arrowsmith on fiddle and Richard Arrowsmith on melodeon, and with all four of them being strong singers, this Sheffield-based but internationally renowned group has a reputation for state-of-the-art modern British folk music that truly connects with audiences. They have a rich repertoire of both a-Capella and accompanied traditional songs, alongside self-penned numbers that merge seamlessly into the folk canon, and they also excel at instrumental sets that re-invigorate social dance rhythms from Britain and beyond. This is an auspicious return visit to the NCEM.
“Brilliantly showcases their joyous confidence and versatility. With particularly impressive four-part harmony singing, this is a rich, dynamic and inspired team.” fRoots Magazine
