Biography

Described by FATEA as 'atmospheric heaven' and by Bright Young Folk as 'super talented'; Threaded will take you on a journey through a roller coaster of emotions and musical imagery, with copious amounts of reflection and participation, and you will be left 'feeling fresh, elated and eager for more.' (Folk Radio UK).

Threaded is the 'impressive talent' (Folk Radio UK), of Jamie Rutherford (guitar and vocals), Ning- ning Li (violin) and Rosie Bott (clarinet). They have released two albums to great acclaim: Fair Winds & Following Seas (2017) and their debut album 'of what we spoke' in 2015. Both albums have been produced by Joe Broughton (The Urban Folk Quartet) and their original music reflects on places they have been, experiences they have had, spontaneous inspirations, little stories and poetry collaborations. They want nothing more than for the audience to immerse themselves in the moment and take their own story from the music! They have toured the UK extensively, and their music has been aired on a number of Radio shows, including BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio Wales.

Alongside their usual Threaded music making, they have been working with Theatre company: Red Earth Theatre, on their current production 'Soonchild'. They have written the score, and will be performing in the show when it tours nationally in 2019. Red Earth Theatre create shows which are accessible to the d/Deaf community, so the research into how to make the music accessible is supported by Arts Council England. 

'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)
