Routes String Quartet

Saturday 1st July, 4.00pm
The Old Brewery
Tickets: £10 / £8 concessions / £5 under 16s
Available on the door or info@cromartyartstrust.org.uk


The Routes Quartet are an exquisite blend of the folk and classical traditions, featuring evocative arrangements of folk tunes and stunning original compositions. The Routes Quartet are made up of the classic string quartet instrumentation of Cello (Rufus Huggan), Viola (Emma Tomlinson), and two Fiddles (Gràinne Brady and Tricia Mullan).  The sound is a charming concoction of classical, Scottish, Irish and English traditional music as well as their own deftness for the art of composing. The string quartet instrumentation is well established in other genres but is entirely new to the folk scene. 

Routes set out to arrange and explore the vast textures, tones and intimate musical qualities that are characteristic of the string quartet, but with a folky, rootsy accent.  Their debut album ‘Windrose’ is produced by none other than highly acclaimed violinist/arranger Greg Lawson (BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, GRIT Orchestra, Moishes Bagel).
