Lime Quartet / Bio

With a name evoking the streets and trees of London, you might expect a very English sound from the Lime Quartet. And you would be right – but it’s an England layered with the musics of Medieval France, The Appalachians, North Africa and Cape Breton.

Crafted into a mesmerising whole, the Lime Quartet's music encompasses rich fiddle bowing, driving drum and spoon rhythms, crystalline guitar chops, bouncing clawhammer banjo, hammered dulcimer and heart felt vocals.

From jigs, reels and hornpipes, old French dances and American mountain tunes to Middle Eastern-style improvisations; with a lively blend of influences the Lime Quartet raises a heady ceilidh brew, provides an elegant wedding serenade and holds festival, concert and folk club audiences rapt.
