Melrose Quartet are Nancy Kerr & James Fagan plus Jess & Richard Arrowsmith - 4 folk singers and musicians at the top of their game. Lovely choice of songs and instrumentals all sung and played beautifully. Songs are written or arranged by Melrose themselves and the ones they write themselves are often celebrations for relatives and friends' weddings or birthdays which gives a lovely intimate feel to the album. Try to see them live if you can - they sound exactly the same as this studio album. They're the real thing. Fabulous!

I hadn't heard of this album until it kept turning up on my list of things to try since I'd bought X, Y and Z. I was getting tired of seeing it there to be honest, but I decided to give it a listen before I sent it to the outer darkness. Well! I listened to the brief samples, and that was that - I ordered it straight away.

It's hard to describe really - very traditional but also very much of today. Timeless, I suppose. The musicians are excellent and their enthusiasm is very infectious. Some tracks were familiar while others were new to me, but all were well worth the listening.

Definitely a new favourite - one I'm very pleased to have been persuaded to try.

have not stopped playing this since I bought it! I saw them live a little while ago and they were stunning - and the album reflects all of that; wonderful close harmonies, beautiful songs (some great new tunes) and I really love their combination of voice and instruments, some very subtle arrangements. Lovely!

Wonderful singling and playing - as well as a number of great new songs. My favourite was probably "Santa Georgia" with a catchy and traditional sounding tune and brilliant lyrics.
The whole album repays multiple plays with lots of little details that gradually reveal themselves - often in the delicious harmonies.

I had the pleasure of seeing the Melrose Quartet in December and was pleased to hear that they are able to reproduce the quality of their live performances in the studio. For me the strong points of this album are three of their self penned numbers - Santa Georgia, Fifty Verses and Wedding Bells although all of the tracks have an instant appeal. Some of the songs are performed a capella while the rest are accompanied by acoustic guitar, fiddle and accordion.

Four well established stars with an excitement that stems from brilliant harmony singing and fresh bright instrumentals. They show a great affinity for the music, and clearly enjoy performing together. Only very rare talents can draw both the largest and smallest audiences into an intimacy like this. The album combines both accompanied and a Capella songs … using both new and traditional songs perfectly...
