Methera

Contemporary traditional music from a ground-breaking quartet

Methera is a unique ensemble: a string quartet with roots firmly planted in English traditional music. Their national tours, BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and collaborations have helped them establish a reputation as a scintillating live act, blazing a trail through the uncharted territory that lies between folk and chamber music.

Lucy Elkiss (cello), Emma Reid and Sam Sweeney (fiddles) and Miranda Rutter (viola) 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 both sophisticated and earthy, groundbreaking and familiar, enchanting and thrilling – chamber folk at its best.

“Mesmerising performances” – Anthony Sargent CBE, founding Director of Sage Gateshead

“Seriously stylish playing that’s putting the sparkle back into the tradition” – Verity Sharp, BBC Radio 3 Late Junction
