North Shropshire Folk is back with the wonderful all-round act ‘The Melrose Quartet’ at The Talbot Theatre, Whitchurch Leisure Centre, on Saturday, December 2 at 8pm.

With both tight a capella harmony and energy-packed instrumentals, they comprise leading musicians Nancy Kerr (2015 BBC Folk Singer of the Year), James Fagan and Jess and Richard Arrowsmith with twin fiddles, guitar and bouzouki, melodeon and four strong voices.

In concert they perform a diverse repertoire. There are carousing choral songs, lively dance tunes, ancient stories and modern pieces written in celebration of everything.

This is music for everybody and they were nominated for ‘Best Group’ in the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Tickets at £12 adults, £10 adult concessions and £6 young people are available from the Leisure Centre on 01948 660660, 07506724572 or online on
