The Anwoth Quartet, Dumfries and Galloway’s resident professional string quartet providing live music to make any event special.

The Anwoth Quartet Jane, Wilson, Michael and David are The Anwoth Quartet, Dumfries and Galloway’s resident professional string quartet. They studied either at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow (now the Royal Scottish Conservatoire), or the Guildhall School of Music in London. For Jane, Wilson and Michael, violins and viola, this was followed by long and varied professional careers including playing in the BBC SSO, Scottish Opera, and (insert others).

Their combined talents and musical experience guarantee passionate and energetic performances of all that they play from their varied and eclectic repertoire.
