BIO

Nominated for Best Group, 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards

Melrose Quartet are Nancy Kerr (voice, fiddle), James Fagan (voice, bouzouki, guitar), Jess Arrowsmith (voice, fiddle) and Richard Arrowsmith (voice, melodeons). This November sees them release their eagerly-awaited second album, Dominion.

From deep roots in their hometown’s vibrant music, song and dance scene, to smashing concert appearances all over the UK, Sheffield-based Melrose Quartet have attracted a reputation for making music that truly connects with people. All four are internationally renowned singers, instrumentalists and writer/composers and this year they were proud to be named the new patrons of Whitby Folk week.

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

“Brilliantly showcases their joyous confidence and versatility. With particularly impressive four-part harmony singing, this is a rich, dynamic and inspired team.” fRoots Magazine

…all in all an inspired ensemble so obviously playing for joy” Martin Simpson
