This is part of Methera’s premier tour of Sweden last year. Methera is a string quartet which includes Ruscombe’s Miranda Rutter – the quartet has it’s roots firmly planted in English traditional music. Their website says: “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 Deakin (cello), John Dipper and Emma Reid (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.”

Lars Wall writes: “Emma Reid fiol, John Dipper fiol, Miranda Rutter viola, Lucy Deakin cello. En oerhört samspelt stråkkvartett som spelar folkmusik à la Väsen.”
