Melrose Quartet are truly an all-round folk act, with both tight a capella harmony and energy-packed instrumentals.
They comprise leading English musicians Nancy Kerr (2015 BBC Folk Singer of the Year), James Fagan, Jess Arrowsmith and Richard Arrowsmith with twin fiddles, guitar and bouzouki, melodeon and four strong voices.
In concert, Melrose Quartet perform a diverse repertoire – carousing chorus songs, lively dance tunes, ancient stories and modern pieces written in celebration of everything from
weddings to issues that affect all of our 21st century lives.
This is music for everybody.
From deep roots in their hometown’s vibrant music, song and dance scene, to smashing concert appearances in the UK and abroad, Sheffield-based Melrose Quartet have attracted a reputation for making music that truly connects with people.
“…all in all an inspired ensemble so obviously playing for joy”
