ALBUM RELEASE TOUR
AUTUMN 2021 EARLY BOOKING PAGE
Arranging and promoting a tour on this scale is a
huge job, any advanced concert confirmation is a
great help with the success of the tour!...
Due for release in late summer 2021 the album is shaping up to be Chris' best work to do date. A collection of original folk songs and instrumental works that very much follow up on the debut album "Across the Divide" that went on to receive glowing reviews in the UK press and global airplay including the folk scene benchmark BBC Radio 2 Folk Show. The accompanying tour is looking set to be Chris' biggest to date and we'd love you to be a part of it!
Following Chris love of the folk music and the folk tradition the songs on the album are often reflective, at times celebratory of the simple things in life, sometimes influenced by current social affairs and often genuinely optimistic but what really sets Chris' songs apart from others is his technical virtuosity on acoustic guitar alongside a real sense of musicality and showmanship. He has an almost unrivalled command of many styles of acoustic playing; traditional folk, bluegrass, delta blues, jazz, ragtime, classical... He's been described by many of the the leading music magazines as one of the best around:
“Across the divide, the debut album from Chris Quinn, is the kind of quality release that should propel him to the forefront of the new generation of musicians currently performing on the folk music scene” ACOUSTIC Magazine
"This is his solo debut and should comfortably see him moving several steps up the acoustic scene ladder."
"World Class... Constant international touring over the last decade including a stint opening for the Jools Holland Orchestra as well as playing rhythm guitar for some of the world’s leading gypsy jazz guitarists has given this Shrewsbury born acoustic guitarist and vocalist an enviable confidence." SONGLiNES Magazine
"Across the divide really does live up to it's title, seamlessly merging two traditions with strong songwriting and excellent musicianship." Bright Young Folk
Since the release Chris has been touring constantly, focusing a lot of his time building a live reputation in Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland where he plays around 100 solo shows per year. He's also been honing his craft working alongside many of the worlds leading acoustic guitarists, in the past 12 months alone Chris has toured and worked with Stochelo Rosenberg, Clive Carroll, Robin Nolan, Paulus Schäfer and John Doyle!
