Contemporary traditional music from a ground-breaking quartet
With roots firmly planted in English traditional music, national tours, BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and collaborations have helped Methera establish a reputation as a scintillating live act, blazing a trail through the uncharted territory that lies between folk and chamber music.
Lucy Deakin (cello), Emma Reid (fiddle), Miranda Rutter (viola) and guest Sam Sweeney (fiddle) combine a deep knowledge of traditional music with a wide range of other influences and expertise and a deep sense of musical interaction. Newly composed pieces sit alongside timeless traditional material; their music is sophisticated and earthy, groundbreaking and familiar, enchanting and thrilling - chamber folk at its best.
