ACCLAIMED COMPOSER AND VIRTUOSOS CELLIST JO QUAIL ADDED TO AMENRA & BORIS UK TOUR
I recently performed with Danish goddess Myrkur on her Folkesange tour, supporting and also joining her ensemble for 4 songs. It was fascinating to step in to her world and to have an opportunity to work with her and the ensemble in realising both the traditional folk songs and her own compositions too. I felt very lucky to receive such a warm response from her audience.’
On this tour Jo will be playing some pieces from her forthcoming 4th album (released later this year) and adds, ‘I’m looking forward to seeing how these develop during this tour. I find that only when I take a composition on stage do I fully begin to know and understand it; it morphs, develops, and reveals itself with each performance and my audience is as much a part of the writing process as I am. I’ll be recording this album with Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studios (Electric Wizard, Primordial, Conan) in March, Chris is an outstanding producer and I think we’re going to have a lot of fun making this record!
Since starting to play solo in 2010, Jo has released three albums, three EPs and a live DVD and toured across the world with the likes of Caspian.
