First a big warm welcome back to popular country singer GARY QUINN
Quinn and his band have performed at the Country2Country Festival in London’s O2 for the last two years that has been headlined by the likes of Brad Paisley, The Zac Brown Band, Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum as well as festivals the length and breadth of the UK and Europe.
Gary was also invited to share the stage with Sugarland’s Kristian Bush and Hall of Fame Songwriter Bob DiPiero as part of the CMA Songwriter Series that visited Europe. This, coupled with an ever growing following and performing alongside James House at a sold out Troubadour Cafe in London has helped propel his name in the UK and Ireland.
“He’s wonderful, he’s really good…” Kristian Bush – Sugarland.
“A modern country sound with echoes of the past…” Country Music People Magazine – UK
A regular performer at the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival, he has performed alongside Nashville recording artists Carlene Carter, John Brannen and Nanci Griffith as well as opening for a CMA Songwriter Series show that included Clint Black and Bill Anderson.
Gary is also no stranger to Nashville having played at the Belfast Nashville Songwriter Showcase (with Billy Montana and Pam Rose), the prestigious CMA Music Fest and the CMA Global Artist Party at iconic venue ‘The Stage’ on Broadway. He’s has played support slots for touring US artists Collin Raye, Larry Gatlin, Will Hoge, Aaron Watson and Gene Watson.
“Gary is just what the UK country music scene needs – someone who is passionate about modern country music, yet respectful of its traditions…” Allan Watkiss – CMA International Broadcaster & Director of UKCountryRadio.com
We’re also delighted that our old friends the Dart Festival Chorus will again be singing at St Saviour’s Church – here’s what Karen Bryant-Mole has to say:
“Dart Festival Chorus is getting very excited about its forthcoming trip! Its festival concert, Around the World in 60 Minutes, takes the choir and audience on a whirlwind tour of the globe, starting and ending in the England and taking in countries as diverse as Germany, Finland, Russia, China, South Africa, Colombia and America
This year’s Guest conductor is Ian Curror. Ian is a former Director of Music at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea. Choirs he has worked with include the English Chamber Choir, Vasari Singers and Nonsuch Singers. The choir feels very privileged to have had two of the works in their concert programme arranged especially for them by Ian.”
Do join Ian and the choir on their musical journey, on Sunday in St Saviour’s Church – they’re amazing!
