Artist Details

Melrose Quartet

The Melrose Quartet are an amalgamation of Multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners Nancy Kerr and James Fagan and the legendary Sheffield duo
Richard and Jess Arrowsmith (Crucible, Hekety, Pecsaetan) and the band are capturing imaginations with their bold take on old and new English songs and tunes.
Glorious four-part harmony singing combines with crunchy twin fiddles, full -
bodied melodeon and powerful bouzouki in a set that will leave your heart singing and
your feet tapping.
Their live performances infect audiences with the warmth and sparkle that these four seasoned musicians feel when they unite.
"...all in all an inspired ensemble so obviously playing for joy" (Martin Simpson, 2012)
