Nancy Kerr, James Fagan, Jess Arrowsmith and Richard Arrowsmith are The Melrose Quartet. We had a fantastic evening with James & Nancy back in 2013 and we’re really excited to now be able to have them back with Richard and Jess for what we know will be a fantastic evening of superb singing and musicianship.
The Melrose Quartet was nominated for Best Group in the BBC Radio 2 Folk awards in 2014. Nancy of course won Folk Singer of the year in 2015, and also received a nomination this year for best original track. As a duo she and James have won the folk awards twice, in 2003 and 2011. Jess and Richard as well as performing as a duo and with their band 'Crucible', are also part of the much in demand ceilidh band Hekety.
Their new album Dominion will be officially released the day before they are with us, but pre-release copies are available now if you want a sneak preview. Their previous album 'Fifty Verses' received some great reviews.
