Following their incredible performance in 2016, we are absolutely delighted to welcome back to The Crescent The Routes Quartet.

The Routes Quartet are an exquisite blend of the folk and classical traditions, featuring evocative arrangements of folk tunes and stunning original compositions.

The Quartet is made up of the classic string quartet instrumentation of cello (Rufus Huggan), viola (Emma Tomlinson), and two fiddles (Gráinne 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 trad 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.

«Profound learning in both the Celtic traditions and Classic music has left this group respectful of their roots yet complex in their composition.» — Marty Cullen, BBC Ulster, 2016

«Bringing classical training to bear on traditional music with a sophistication beyond their years. The way all the music is arranged and played is what makes the album a gloriously coherent success» — Keith Bruce, The Herald Scotland, 2017
