Folk at the New Room: Melrose Quartet

23 May 2024
7.30pm (café bar open from 6pm, doors 7pm)
£20

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 four are internationally renowned singers, instrumentalists, writer/composers and teachers and in 2017 they were proud to be named the new patrons of Whitby Folk week.

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.

Nancy Kerr (voice, fiddle), James Fagan (voice, bouzouki, guitar), Jess Arrowsmith (voice, fiddle) and Richard Arrowsmith (voice, melodeons) are all internationally renowned singers, instrumentalists, writer/composers and teachers.

Their 2017 album Dominion expands and strengthens the musical presence they first asserted with “Fifty Verses”, their BBC Folk Award-nominated debut CD released in 2014.

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 & birthdays to issues that affect all of our 21st century lives. This is music for everybody.

7.30pm - door 7pm. Join us 6-7pm for our informal folk music session in the cafe-bar.

Tickets £20 / £18 advance Included in Spring-Summer Season 2024 Ticket (6 gigs for £75)
