Vertex Festival 2018: The Quiggs
31st October 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
“The Quiggs” is a Scottish/Danish duo consisting of husband and wife, Stephen and Pernille Quigg. Stephen Quigg is a long established folk singer and former member of the legendary band “The McCalmans” and Pernille Quigg, originally from Denmark, is a folksinger and songwriter.
Together they comprise “The Quiggs”. Stephen and Pernille share a common feeling for the tradition of folksong and both know a good song when they hear it. The combination of the two voices in close harmony in songs whether traditional or contemporary interspersed with anecdotes and a touch of humour has received much praise from both audiences and organisers. They have toured together in Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands with great success. A concert with The Quiggs is a chance to hear folksong in its original form – simple, yet highly expressive, beautiful harmonies and songs that seek the audience’s participation.
The duo has previously released the album “River of Time” in 2015, which received fine reviews and airplay on several programmes in BBC and other European radio stations. In March 2017 “The Quiggs” released their new CD “Seeds I Didn’t Sow”, which recently featured as album of the week on Celtic Music Radio and was described by Folkradio.uk’s Mike Davies as, “Unquestionably one of the best folk albums of the year.”
Doors open 7pm.
