The Dovetail Trio

This will be The Dovetail Trio's second visit to the club. The coming together of these of three proven young talents (Matt Quinn, Rosie Hood and Jamie Roberts) went down a with their highly distinctive style and sound. They achieve so much with just concertina and guitar and their three voices but what capable and charismatic voices! There's a really thoughtful, imaginative quality to the trio's fresh-hued arrangements of songs of almost exclusively traditional origin, and this gives rise to a unique richness of vision and execution.

Matt is a Newcastle Folk Degree alumnus and now a veteran of all manner of concert and ceilidh outfit, working for artists as diverse as Geckoes and Eliza Carthy). Rosie is an engaging Wiltshire singer and winner of the Fred Jordan Memorial. Jamie is one half of the multiple-award-winning duo Gilmore & Roberts
