The location of this first public presentation of The Ciderhouse Rebellion‘s debut album UNTOLD, described as “a work of startling, immediate beauty” by Folk Radio, has been moved from Ashburton Arts Centre to a secret location in the North of England and will be live streamed to the world. More details here asap.


Whitehouse Sessions brings an exciting new duo to Ashburton Arts Centre: The Ciderhouse Rebellion. Violinist Adam Summerhayes and master accordionist Murray Grainger present their debut album UNTOLD.

“Gorgeous stuff” says BBC Radio 3 of this unique three track 50 minute improvisation recorded live in a single take.

“Two virtuoso musicians playing some of the most startling and original music you will ever encounter. Compelling, exciting and utterly original” says Phil Beer.

Live performances on the album tour will be a mix of pure, magical, improvisation alongside the duo’s take on traditional folk tunes (particularly from the North-East) and their own original material.

“Grainger’s accordion with Summerhayes’s fiddle is especially beautiful” (Songlines).

Adam Summerhayes has been described as a “Paganini of the traditional violin” (fRoots)
