About The Craxton String Quartet
The Craxton String Quartet are a group of classically trained, musically omnivorous generalists dedicated to professionalism. We can play almost anything in order to convey the right mood for the occasion.
After 30 years as a Molecular Biologist (with music always on the side) Molly Craxton wanted to devote her remaining days to spreading joy with music. Molly shares a link of descent with the well known British musicians, Harold and Janet Craxton. For that reason, her musical offerings are labelled with her surname. Molly plays violin and can organise a range of ensembles to play live background music: solo violin, string groups and mixed instrument groups. The string quartet format is ideal, as it can give voice to a vast range of musical ideas and moods. The Craxton String Quartet was officially born in 2018. Molly plays first violin in our YouTube video debut. All of Molly's co-players are thoroughly seasoned professionals who bring a fresh attitude. We come to events professionally clad in concert black and bring our own chairs and lighting. We are an acoustic ensemble.
