Described by FATEA as 'atmospheric heaven' and by Bright Young Folk as 'super talented'; Threaded will take you on a musical journey, exploring stories, people and the natural world, and leaving you 'feeling fresh, elated and eager for more.' (Folk Radio UK).
Threaded are a folk- fusion acoustic trio that create and perform original instrumentals and self-penned songs, inspired by world folk culture, nature, stories and personal experiences.
Threaded is the 'impressive talent' (Folk Radio UK), of Jamie Rutherford (guitar/lead vocals), Ning- ning Li (violin/vocals) and Rosie Rutherford (clarinet/vocals). They have released 3 studio albums to great critical acclaim, have toured the UK extensively, performing in venues such as London's Southbank Centre, and festivals such as Wilderness, Just So and Timber. They are currently working on new material towards a fourth album!
Threaded’s show is full to the brim of energy, emotion, passion and reflection, delivered with an outstanding level of musicianship. From foot-stomping jigs to poignant ayres and soulful songs, Threaded’s set has something for everyone.
Recent projects have seen them create music for theatre; working with d/Deaf accessible theatre company Red Earth Theatre, as composers and performers. This kickstarted their exploration of accessiblity in music, and how they could make their music more inclusive. Since this they received ACE funding for an R&D project during lockdown, which looked at composition and accessibilty, and they have been lucky enough to work with incredible BSL sign song performers Rebecca Withey and Caroline Parker MBE. They have also been working with Nottingham University's Mixed Reality Lab into developing tech to support future performances,and have recently become Associate Artists for their VIP Studio.
'They are to be greatly applauded for the entirely self-penned compositions that they have come up with, and for the most impressive breadth of style they demonstrate.' (R2 Rock 'n' Reel)
'With their own impressive talent to underpin their passion for musical exploration, [and] seemingly endless capacity to create music and song that appeals across multiple audiences' (Folk Radio UK)
