Sarah Hayes

Sarah Hayes is a singer, instrumentalist and composer of dazzling versatility. Best known for her work with Admiral Fallow, over the past few years she has been in demand for projects with Wildings, Alistair Anderson & Northlands, Inge Thomson, Hamish Napier, Sara Kazmi and more. Sarah’s debut solo album, Woven – a studio reimagining of her Celtic Connections New Voices commission – has received widespread acclaim since its release in November 2015.

‘Bold and inventive…surprising and delightful…quite remarkable’ ***** (R2 Magazine)

'This deeply absorbing music achieves its ambitious aim magnificently' ***** (fRoots Magazine)

‘A fresh, emotional collection’ **** (The Guardian)

‘This record reveals much about a boldly emerging new talent’ **** (The Scotsman)


The Routes Quartet

The Routes Quartet is an exquisite blend of the folk and classical traditions, featuring evocative arrangements of folk tunes and stunning original compositions. Made up of the classic string quartet instrumentation of cello (Rufus Huggan), viola (Emma Tomlinson), and two fiddles (Gràinne Brady and Tricia Mullan), the sound is a charming concoction of classical, Scottish, Irish and English traditional music and demonstrates their own deftness for the art of composing. Routes set out to arrange and explore the vast textures, tones and intimate musical qualities that are characteristic of the string quartet, but with a folky, rootsy accent. Their debut album, WINDROSE, was recorded live by Keir Long at St. Columba’s Chapel, Drimnin Estate on the Morven Penninsula and was produced by The Routes Quartet and highly acclaimed fiddle player Patsy Reid.

'This is music that seeks to saturate your aural senses. From clap to chop to draw to drone, the dynamics of this quartet will tease you into melodic tension before their blazing reels leave your head bobbing and endorphins flooding.' ***** (BBC Radio Ulster)

'The Routes Quartet deliver on so many levels; they’ve got groove and energy galore, yet they command a soulfulness and delicacy that could make you weep!' ***** (Patsy Reid)
