Four of England’s finest traditional fiddle players, Bryony Griffith, Jim Boyle, Ross Grant and Rosie Butler-Hall, have joined forces to create The English Fiddle Ensemble with the aim of allowing their audience to feel the bite and lift of four fiddles resonating to create joyous harmonies and striking rhythms. Each with a passion for traditional English dance and its music, their combined repertoire is vast and includes rarely played and unusual regional versions of traditional English tunes alongside more familiar session favourites.
This event is part of Manchester Folk Festival – an urban folk festival. It takes place from 21-23 October 2021, in and around HOME and the city centre. Over the autumn weekend, they present an exhilarating range of events, with the spotlight on contemporary and traditional English folk music.
