The Idumea Quartet

We are happy to welcome The Idumea Quartet to #theharrisonbasement

SUNDAY 4th March

Blending tradition, experimentation, and sheer nonsense in roughly equal measure, the Idumea Quartet deconstruct and reconstitute Appalachian folk music, drawing strong influences from minimalism and experimental music. Using the traditional string quartet instrumentation while coming from a shared background in traditional music, the quartet seeks to bring the trad repertoire into conversation with a chamber music aesthetic. Add harmonized singing into the mix and the result is a sound which is both high and lonesome and symphonic.

The Idumea Quartet is:
Jane Rothfield and Ewan Macdonald – fiddle
Becka Wolfe – viola
Nathan Bontrager – cello

A full-length recording project is currently underway.

Tickets £7 adv HERE // £8 door
