Methera and Three Cane Whale in Bristol

CONTEMPORARY folk quartet Methera comes to  St George’s, Bristol, on Thursday 5th December at 8pm,  at where they will be supporting Three Cane Whale.

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.
