Quill – “Riding Rainbows”
After months in lock down and the uniquely bizarre times we have all been through, classic Midlands’s folk rock band Quill are delighted to be touring again with a great new show! It features an eclectic mix of stylish covers of well-known songs, original numbers and Quill standards.
So get ready for a fabulous night of music with quirky interpretations of Blackberry Way, Telephone Line, I can Hear The Grass, Don’t Bring Me Down, original new songs from their new album Riding Rainbows and long standing favourites Say It Ain’t So, The Jig and Nine Mile Camp.
Seven piece Quill consist of Joy Strachan-Brain lead vocals, Kate McWilliam violin, John Jowitt bass guitar, Lee T Evans on lead guitar, Abby Brant on keyboards, former Robert Plant drummer Andy Edwards and former Move, ELO and Black Sabbath drummer Bev Bevan on drums and percussion.
A Quill set takes you on a journey through an unexpectedly wide range of powerful story telling material, the songs are delivered with imagination and lyrical beauty, all shot through with the presence and ease that only real stage craft can bring. It’s not easy to sum up Quill in a few words, but when you draw on deep diverse musical sources, and when long lifetimes of experience inform your stage craft and presentation, wonderfully interesting things can and do happen.
If you are not already a fan of Quill, you will be after seeing what promises to be a superb night of music.
