Friends of Swindon Arts Centre present ColvinQuarmby

The Friends of Swindon Arts Centre are delighted to present their first show here at the Arts Centre.

ColvinQuarmby's musical style stubbornly refuses to be pigeonholed, hardly surprising when they combine guitars, drums and percussion with fiddle, cello, squeezebox and spine tingling five part vocal harmonies.

Setting them apart from the rest is creative front man Gerry Colvin. His energy is infectious, joyous and endearing, fuelled by a sense of the absurd, and inspires between-song banter that the country's top stand ups would kill for.

ColvinQuarmby play "refreshingly different acoustic music". A potent mix of driving rhythm laced with liberal helpings of folk, country and skiffle, with an intelligent use of the pop sensibility, topped off with irresistible harmonies and lyrics of pure poetry and subtle wit.

Growing favourites on the Folk/Acoustic circuit, this live show is spontaneous - unpredictable, often hilarious and always hugely entertaining.

To overstate the humour and tongue-in-cheek delivery style though would be to ignore the strength of this band and most importantly, Colvin's material. The catchy, melodic songs are crafted with incredibly evocative lyrics which can touch the soul in a most powerful way.

From heart-breaking acoustic ballads and foot-tapping country rhythms, to full blown folk-rock anthems.

This power is enhanced due to the consistent performance of a great band featuring Allen Maslen (Meet on the Ledge)  on Guitars / Accordian and Backing Vocals, Martin Fitzgibbon (Miranda Sykes Band) on Drums, Marion Fleetwood on Fiddle, Cello, Mandolin and Vocals and Founder member Nick Quarmby (Phil Beer Band) providing Bass, Acoustic Guitar and Backing Vocals.

Tickets 12, FoSAC 10
