Music: Rob Harbron and Emma Reid – Ruskin Mill College

Friday 12 October


Rob Harbron (English concertina, guitar, voice) and Emma Reid (fiddle, viola, voice) are renowned instrumentalists and compelling performers. Together they draw on their shared roots in English traditional music, but also introduce other styles and traditions, including those of Emma’s motherland, Sweden.
The essence of their collaboration is about bringing the dance tunes of England to life, with the vitality, swing, and lift at the heart of each tune. This is honest, upbeat music ideally suited to our acoustic setting, where you can enjoy the spontaneous harmonies and intricate interactions between the players and their dialogue with the audience.
“Both players like to delve deeply into the music they play, perhaps playing an English tune we’ve heard a hundred times before, but drawing out beauty and nuances not touched upon by more boisterous players” The Living Tradition
The duo has released two albums New Dogs, Old Tricks (2006) and Flock & Fly (2015).
