Biography

Described by FATEA as 'atmospheric heaven' and by Bright Young Folk as 'super talented'; Threaded will take you on a journey, inspired by world folk culture, nature, stories and personal experience, with a fusion of folk, contemporary classical and world soundscapes, and will leave you 'feeling fresh, elated and eager for more.' (Folk Radio UK).

Threaded are an acoustic fusion trio that create and perform music inspired by world folk culture, nature, stories and personal experiences. Their original compositions fuse influences from traditional folk, classical music and world soundscapes, which has culminated in their unique and distinctive sound.

Threaded is the 'impressive talent' (Folk Radio UK), of Jamie Rutherford (guitar/lead vocals), Ning- ning Li (violin/vocals) and Rosie Rutherford (clarinet/bass clarinet/ vocals). They have released 3 studio albums to great critical acclaim, and have toured the UK extensively. Their highly anticipated 4th album ‘As it always was’ will be toured released this summer.

Threaded’s show is full to the brim of energy, emotion, passion and reflection, delivered with an outstanding level of musicianship. Their 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 accessibility 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 accessibility, 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)
