The Boston-based Rasa String Quartet finds their niche exploring the musical space where classical and folk traditions intersect and influence one another.

They’ve collaborated with renowned folk musicians like Celtic harpist, Maeve Gilchrist, Hardanger Fiddler, Dan Trueman, and Singer-Songwriter, Judy Collins, performed their own programs at various venues and festivals around the country, including Rockport Music, WGBH, WBUR, and Brian O’Donovan’s Rockport Celtic Festival, and teach educational residencies at a variety of institutions, like UMass Dartmouth and the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.

By exploring the connection between music and storytelling at the heart of folk traditions, Rasa String Quartet delivers engaging and accessible programs that showcase works from a variety of cultures and highlight unknown composers.
