The One-Woman String Quartet Patsy Reid comes to The Met

Fiddler Patsy Reid comes to The Met with her third solo album, The Brightest Path, on Friday 2 May at 8pm.


Patsy Reid is the most in-demand traditional fiddle player in the UK. A former member of Breabach, in the past few years she has performed live with Kathryn Tickell’s Northumbrian Voices, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman, The Cecil Sharp Project, Zakir Hussain’s Pulse of the World and new string trio VAMM. In the studio she is a one-woman string quartet, contributing cello, viola and violin to albums by Duncan Chisholm, Bella Hardy, Treacherous Orchestra and Tim Edey.


There are lots of wondrous fiddle players in Scotland – and indeed the rest of the British Isles. What perhaps sets Patsy Reid apart is musical hunger and her willingness to explore supposedly alien territories of technique, content and culture.” – fRoots


Combining skills from both traditional and classical disciplines, Patsy now takes centre stage. The Brightest Path is an album of newly recovered melodies from the Atholl Collection plus a selection of self-penned and contemporary material.


Tickets for the event are £10, or £8 for concessions. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz
