The Froe in Concert on Saturday 13th April 2019
With sweet vocals soaring over shimmering strings, this impressively good string quartet weaves together folk roots and classical influences to realise music that is as imaginative as it is beautiful.
Drawing together musicians from Ashley Hutching's Rainbow Chasers and The Old Dance School to spine-tingling effect, and with a diverse set of old songs and originals, this is an intimate and mesmerising evening of folk music.
Helen Lancaster and Ruth Angell join friends Emma Capp and Charlie Heys to create a unique blend of intricate sounds from fiddles, viola, cello, guitar, harmonium and vocals, playing original self-penned music with traditional and classical influences. Helen (The Fair Rain) and Emma (Emma Capp) grew up together in Hampshire and moving to Birmingham to study music, met Charlie (McNeill & Heys, The Fair Rain) and Ruth (Ruth Angell, Peacock Angell Band, The Rainbow Chasers) at the Birmingham Conservatoire.
Ruth Angell's sweet vocals soar over weaving melodies and rich textures, often contrasted with sparse harmonies and magically inventive soundscapes. Their music has captivated audiences from folk clubs to festivals.
