About the event

Threaded are releasing their second album, Fair Winds and Following Seas, and would love you to join them for their launch party!

Performances by Jack Cookson: BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Nominee 2016, and Phil Theharp: Local Singer-Songwriter will also feature on the night! 

With the unique instrumental line up of clarinet, violin and guitar, Threaded creates a distinctive sound like you’ve never heard before. With a classically trained background and influence from folk and acoustic music, this young and inspired trio combine their passions into one musical experience. This culminates in a creative ensemble, with an eclectic array of styles and influences in their original material. Featuring beautiful melodic lines, combined with stylistic harmonies, atmospheric counter melodies and carefully crafted riffs, the balance between these three musicians is stunning.

Threaded is the combined talents of Jamie Rutherford (guitar and vocals), Ning- ning Li (violin) and Rosie Bott (clarinet) and in 2015 released their debut album 'of what we spoke' produced by Joe Broughton (The Urban Folk Quartet). It was given 4 stars by R2 (Rock 'n' Reel) Magazine; described by FATEA magazine as 'an impressive and stimulating debut disc from three very talented musicians' and by fROOTS as 'a thrilling musical ride, where inventive and melodically interesting tune- medleys alternate with thoughtful, quirky self-penned songs.'

The band perform in a variety of different venues, from Arts Centres to Folk Clubs, and have performed at many festivals across the UK. Their music has been played on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Shropshire.

Threaded are all graduates of the prestigious Birmingham Conservatoire, and have all been members of Joe Broughton’s Conservatoire Folk Ensemble. This amazing ensemble has seen them play stages such as The Royal Albert Hall and Symphony Hall, and at festivals such as Cropredy, Towersey and Green Man.
