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 and 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.
