The Ciderhouse Rebellion with special guest Jessie Summerhayes @ Musicport Festival
24 October 2021
With deep local connections and stunning repertoire the duo brings together master accordionist Murray Grainger and fiddle player Adam Summerhayes – each performance uniquely magical in its improvisatory focus, whether based on a traditional tune or springing from a single unplanned note.
Profound and eloquent, epic and haunting, wild, dramatic and occasionally unhinged, The Ciderhouse Rebellion specialise in creating music within the moment.
“I became utterly bewitched by the beauty of what Summerhayes and Grainger had created. It could justifiably be described as a folk symphony, possessing cyclical completeness yet creating a form that is, at once, both elemental and pastoral.” Fatea Magazine
“A work of startling, immediate beauty.” The Strad
“Two virtuoso musicians playing some of the most startling and original music you will ever encounter. Compelling, exciting and utterly original” Phil Beer.
