Whitby Folk Week patrons Melrose Quartet are Nancy Kerr, James Fagan, Jess & Richard Arrowsmith. Their rich repertoire combines traditional songs and tunes with more recent material that merges seamlessly into the folk canon. They deliver a capella and accompanied song in their strong and inimitable style, alongside dance-informed instrumental sets that both define and re-invigorate social dance rhythms from Britain and beyond. Bouzouki, box, two fiddles and four voices in sublime conjunction. Their most recent (and most seasonal!) album “The Rudolph Variations” is available alongside “Dominion” and “Fifty Verses” in their shop.
Rich, Jess, James and Nancy are all missing live, in person performance and are delighted to be part of this year’s special Whitby at Home programme.
